Leading off the bottom of the first inning, Ehire Adrianza lined a solo HR off Justin Germano to give Sacramento a 1-0 lead. That was almost literally the last moment in which anything good happened for the RiverCats in this game. They got only two hits the rest of the game plus a walk. Meanwhile, starter Nik Turley would give up 7 runs without ever getting an out in the 3rd inning.  Brett Bochy, Cody Hall, and Clay Rapada did ultimately throw 4.1 scoreless innings.

But ultimately the technical term for this kind of game is a "clunker." And they clunked their five game winning streak to a halt. So here, enjoy Jarrett Parker making a fine play from Saturday's game, which was much more enjoyable:

Matt Lujan had the best start of his AA career. His 8 Ks were two better than his previous high in AA, and he's only had more than 8 twice in A ball. He paired it with only his second game with 0 BBs.  Oddly, this was the third consecutive start in which he's surrendered 1 ER on 7 Hits. Josh Osich, in picking up his 13th save had very nearly a perfect inning, striking out the only three batters he faced on 10 pitches.

The Squirrels didn't do a lot of hitting in this game, with only 5 hits and 3 BBs. But all five of their hits went for extra bases including 2 HRs. One from recent arrival Engel Beltre, who now has 2 HRs in only 9 ABs with the Squirrels. And then there was the big one, a 3 run HR from Myles Schroder, only the 15th of his minor league career.

Moreno chipped in with a double. Over the last month, Moreno is hitting .346/.378/.404.

Richmond now gets a well deserved day off, after a long three city road trip on which they went 7-2.

Pity poor Jeff Arnold, who went 0 for 5 in a game in which his teammates picked up 18 hits. Arnold did work a walk in the game, so every SJ hitter reached base at least once. But as you can see from the above, most of them reached base more than that. The singles attack was in full force, as 15 of the hits were one-baggers. And yet for all those hits, the Giants went to the top of the 9th clinging to a 4-3 lead, and a solo HR off Dan Slania erased that and led to extra innings.

Going to the bottom of the 13th, SJ had been out homered by High Desert 8 to 0 over the 4+ games (including two from ex-Giant Alex Burg). But Seth Harrison put an end to that streak with the Giants only HR of the series, a two-run walk off shot.

Jake Smith was an unsung hero for the walk off win with his three nearly perfect innings of relief.

Augusta went up against 2nd round 2014 pick, HS RHP Scott Blewett. And Blewett tied the Greenjackets up pretty well throwing 6 shutout innings.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Blewett just flashed a plus hammer curve to freeze a batter for a strikeout. Great size, strength. FB is 89-93.</p>&mdash; David Lee (@David11Lee) <a href="https://twitter.com/David11Lee/status/607661950097584128">June 7, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Going into the 7th inning trailing 5-0, Augusta staged a late inning comeback ultimately resulting in another walk off victory. And like SJ the walk off salvaged a four game split. In the 7th, three singles and Johneshwy Fargas' second double of the game scored two runs. And in the 8th they strung together four singles, a walk and a Sac Fly to tie it at 5-5.

Jeremy Sy, who had three hits on the game, provided the winning thrill by singling in Skyler Ewing, who had walked to open the inning, the third time he'd reached base in the game.

Another guy with a multi-hit game for Augusta was Jonah Arenado. Which reminds me that I've been waiting for Arenado to have a good game to share this article about him.

18.8 year old SS Manuel Geraldo hit his first professional HR in this game. Geraldo was a $375k signee in 2013. Sandro Fabian didn't have a hit but he reached base three times on two walks and a HBP. 18.6 yr old Mecky Coronado hit .289/.393/.413 in the DSL in 2014 as a 17 year old and is off to a nice start in 2015. Jesus Tona is a 19 year old C out of Venezuela playing in his first pro season.  Robert Antunez, another 19 yr old Venezuelan is really hitting out of his head so far in 2015. This is his third DSL season and he hit .188 last year in 138 ABs.

18.6 yr old RHP Victor Concepcion was one of the DSL team's best starters last year and he had an excellent start in this one with 9 Ks in 5.1 innings in his second start of the season.
