Sacramento scored 5 runs in the first two innings of the game, but it wasn't enough as Nik Turley suffered a PCL pounding. Each team had four-run innings in the first three innings of the game, while from the 4th through the 9th innings the two teams scored only two runs combined.

Juan Perez seems to be turning his season around a little on both sides of the ball, and he had a nice two-way day here, collecting two XBH and teaming up with Brandon Hicks on a great relay play throwing Trevor Story out at 3b.

However, he had just before that lost a ball in the lights to allow the pitcher a double. He'd come around to score the team's 8th run of the night.

Jarrett Parker's HR was his 15th of the season, and it went out with a little bit of room to spare.

Joe Biagini took the EL's lowest ERA into this start, but Erie roughed him a bit, scoring in three of the first four innings and taking a 4-0 lead in the game. Richmond's offense fought back on the strength of 13 hits, including two XBH, and 2 walks, scoring 4 runs of their own between the 5th-7th innings. Those runs included Ricky Oropesa's 12th HR and second in two nights, this one to the opposite field.

The tie run came from Devin Harris, who has slumped badly through most of July but came up big here

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

But Tyler Mizenko, working in his second inning in the 9th, walked a batter with two outs and then allowed him to steal 2b, setting up the walk off:

I suppose that was an appropriate ending for Erie on "Christmas in July" night at the park:

San Jose's fantastic stretch of starting pitching performances finally hit a speed bump in this series in Bakersfield, and Jason Forjet delivered the first outright disaster start in three turns through the rotation. Bakersfield is always a tough place to pitch, and Forjet got in trouble early giving up a 2-run HR in the 1st inning to the Blaze best hitter Tyler O'Neill.

Giants hitters had their chances to slug back in the early going, but they couldn't quite get the big hits. That was particularly true in the 5th inning, when SJ loaded the bases with 0 outs.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Giants load the bases with none out in the fifth, but are unable to score. 8 LOB in the last three innings for SJ.

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

From that point in the game, with 0 outs in the 5th the Giants were shut down completely, getting only 1 hit the rest of game. For the full game story:

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

They go for a split today before heading on to a big series in Visalia, where they've only won one game this year and where Visalia has really had their way with SJ for the last two seasons.

DJ Snelten had another fantastic start, shutting down Delmarva with the exception of a solo HR to power hitting 3b Jomar Reyes. Snelten has 51 Ks, 11 BBs, and 6 runs allowed in his last 6 starts (39.2 IP).  His 7.2 innings pitched in this game was a career high for the 9th round pick in 2013 out of the University of Minnesota.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Snelten doesn&#39;t have his best command tonight but is limiting Delmarva to the Reyes HR through 5.

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


Aside from Snelten, this game was a Johneshwy Fargas showcase, despite just the one hit:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">One of Johneshwy Fargas&#39; better routes helps him track down a deep fly over his shoulder on a running/diving catch.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Johneshwy Fargas is something else.

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

David's math was a little off there. The steal of 3b (ruled a SB and an error) was Fargas' 50th and the later steal of 2b his 51st of the year. I think I might peg Fargas as the Giants prospect who has taken the biggest leap this year from his preseason expected value.  With plus range in CF, a plus arm, and plus speed, Fargas is going to have ways of helping a major league team in the future if the bat can develop at all. Still could use some strength and physical maturation.

Augusta's six game winning streak matches their season high, and puts them just 0.5 game out of 1st place, with a 17-12 record in the second half.

I'll just repeat what I said yesterday: Miguel Gomez has played 31 games this year; he's gone hitless in three of them. After three years in the DSL, the 22 year old is having quite a US debut.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">.<a href="https://twitter.com/fernandopujadas">@fernandopujadas</a> records FOUR hits as the Volcanoes take the game and the series. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/GoSKV?src=hash">#GoSKV</a> <a href="http://t.co/fcB5EcnwIK">pic.twitter.com/fcB5EcnwIK</a></p>&mdash; Volcanoes Baseball (@SKVolcanoes) <a href="https://twitter.com/SKVolcanoes/status/625166545048592384">July 26, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Fernando Pujada's BA has taken a fifty point leap with his last two games as he's gone 6 for 8. The 23 year old Valenzuelan Catcher has a good defensive reputation but his bat hasn't always followed. Steven Duggar, the toolsy OF taken in the 6th round of this year's draft, showed off a couple of his tools with both a SB and an OF assist in this game.

On the mound, this game featured the starting debut of 4th rounder Mac Marshall. It didn't go that well, as Marshall really struggled with his control in this game. Still having added the two LHP, Suarez and Marshall to the rotation in the past week should set SK up well for the second half, or at least make their rotation more interesting to follow.

Manager Kyle Haines discusses the series, which included three straight one-run games, in the post-game wrap and in doing so makes the obvious Miguel Gomez/Pablo Sandoval comparison.And Gomez himself is interviewed here, via translator

I believe that today begins the 2nd half of NWL play (though I'll admit I'm not 100% sure on that) as the Volcanoes head to division leaders Hillsboro Hops. Travel well:

The DSL Giants played a rare low-scoring game (helped in no small part by it also being a rare errorless game). Is Mecky Coronado next year's Miguel Gomez? The 18 year old is listed as a Catcher but almost never plays there (he's done nothing but OF and DH this year) and he's repeating the DSL despite a pretty successful first year as a 17 year old (.806 OPS). But in his second year he is really hitting, with a .947 OPS that would be 5th in the league if he qualified. He's also sporting terrific K:BB ratio with 8 Ks and 12 walks on the year. This by the way is also true of Catcher Jesus Tona, and infielders Robert Antunez and Marco Guzman. Others including Robinson Madrano and Manuel Geraldo are at or close to a 1:1 ratio.  At 21 Ks, 10 BBs, 17 year old Beicker Mendoza isn't showing as good a control of the strike zone, but the youngster is putting together a pretty promising first year regardless.

21 year old RHP Melvin Adon now has 40 Ks and 18 BBs in 48 IP with a 1.13 WHIP and .206 BAA.

* * *

Excellent slate today as strong pitching prospects start everywhere: Ty Blach, Tyler Beede, Chase Johnson, Miguel Santos, and Logan Webb. Probably the best full slate of the year. Blach and Beede's games are on MiLBtv.
