After a promising start to the year, Sacramento hits the All Star break in last place in their division, with a record of 39-52, 14 games behind Fresno. Adam Duvall backed up his 3 HR day with a fine 2 for 4 effort with a double, and also stole a base (though he was also caught stealing: Duvall had crazy legs!). But the Sacramento batters en masse had only 8 hits, with just Duvall's double for XBH, adding two walks and a HB. Quiroz and Frandsen were the only other batters to reach base twice.

Let's give Adam a curtain call, definitely Sacramento's hitter of the first half of the season:

Tommy Hanson's second start was not terribly successful, as he allowed three runs on HRs and walked 4 batters.  In all, he threw 103 pitches without making it out of the 4th inning, though he did collect 6 Ks.

Erik Cordier has just a 1.29 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP in 28 IP in Sacramento this year, though he does have 18 BBs in those 28 innings (along with 36 Ks).

In the 7th inning of this game, Kyle Crick came in to relieve Quirarte. At one point in the inning, with men on first and second and one out, Crick uncorked a WP sending runners to 2nd and 3rd. Crick was then directed to intentionally walk the batter, in order to load the bases.  Now in general, I'm not one to criticize game management of minor league managers, but I really have to ask: how could anybody think it a good idea to have Kyle Crick intentionally walk the bases loaded? Was there the vaguest doubt of what the result of that strategy would be? The inevitable happened, of course. After striking out a batter, Crick issued his third and final walk of the inning, forcing in the go ahead, and ultimately, winning run. I don't get it from a game management perspective, and I don't get it from a developmental perspective.

In fairness to Kyle, before he walked in the losing run, he got the K they were looking for

Of course, after that 1-1 pitch it really didn't seem like Al Castillo had his heart in the rest of that at bat!

Aside from that moment, there's not too much to say about this game. The Squirrels offense really struggled again, as it continues to look to find its footing without Tomlinson and Williamson. The team managed only 4 hits (1 double) and 4 walks. Delfino had most of that, with the only XBH and half the walks. After walking only 10 times in 265 PA in SJ, Slater walked for the 6th time already in Richmond (57 PA). Very nice to see something suggesting a more advanced approach at this level. He also stole his first AA base.

Richmond plays an afternoon game today to finish out their first half before their All Star Break.

Speaking of which,

Congrats, Joe! I will not repeat the "Biagini in a Bottle" debacle to celebrate.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Jose Reyes finally represented himself in the Cal league, with an 8+ inning 7 K start to give San Jose its sixth consecutive win (the Stack the Vets strategy is totally working!). Reyes actually took a shutout into the 9th before surrendering a leadoff solo HR.  The Giants pitching performance had a touch of "dancing through the raindrops" in this one as they allowed 11 hits, including a double, triple and HR and yet surrendered just the one run. 0 BBs and 10 Ks definitely helped!

SJ has allowed just 4 runs in its last 5 games, spurring the 6 game winning streak, as they've averaged fewer than 3 runs per game themselves during those five games.  Christian Arroyo is a crazy, hitting machine lately, and his OPS is climbing up near the .900 mark.  Arroyo hit .326/.388/.511 in the AZL. He hit .333/.378/.469 in the NWL. And he's now hitting .333/.382/.492 in the Cal. Pretty good consistency tossing aside the Sally face plant. i'm willing to say "he can hit!"

One last note from SJ: congrats to Chase Johnson whose 7 inning one-hit gem last week earned plaudits

Yup, I have definitely turned Jonah around, as well as Aramis. Man, the Giants should just hire me for this yeoman's effort!

D.J. Snelten followed up his fantastic previous start with another strong effort.  Now 44 Ks, 7 BBs, 8 Runs in his last 5 starts in Augusta, covering 30 IP.

The Volcanoes have scored 31 runs in the first four games of this series, including games of 8, 9 and now 10 runs scored. Both Julio Pena and Shilo McCall hit their 3rd HRs of the season, Pena as a part of a huge night. Jose Vizcaino continued to tear up the NWL, reaching base three more times. He has 8 hits in his last three games and five multi-hit games in his last eight. He has XBH in five of his last six games. Good start, Viz!

Some interesting names showing up in the AZL box score. Old friend (and World Series ring holder) Brandon Hicks is back in the fold and back in action. And injury reclamation II Ricky Romero made his first appearance of the year. Romero gave up the only two runs of the game. It was an odd game, in that it had 11 BBs but only 7 hits.

Only 23 year old Scott Price and 20 year old C Rene Melendez reached base multiple times. Nathanael Javier had another 0 for 4 which dropped his BA to .161.

Sorry for the late post everybody. Unavoidable duties, but hopefully we'll get some comments up before tomorrow morning's post comes up!
