Like Jack Morris and the fabled starting pitchers of yore, Chris Stratton pitched to the score brilliantly yesterday! Sacramento scored 3 runs in the top of the 2nd; he gave up 3 runs in the bottom of the inning. They scored five more in the third; he allowed three more in the bottom of the third! Pitching to the score. It's why Pitcher Wins are the richest, most insightful stat we have in baseball (though in honesty, I can recite for you the exact career win total of everybody in the 300 Win club).

In reality, Stratton was doing his best in what was clearly a non-humidor PCL game. The game featured five HRs, four of them coming from Sacramento. Jarrett Parker hit his team leading 17th, Ryan Lollis hit his 3rd, and Juan Perez following on his HR from Saturday, had a two HR game on Sunday. He's definitely starting to make his charge for a September call up.

Michael Fulmer was originally scheduled to be the SP for the B-Mets in this game before being traded to Detroit for Yoenis Cespesdes as the trade deadline ripples through the minors (similarly, on Saturday the SJ Giants faced Casey Meisner who had just come to the A's from the Mets for Tyler Clippard).

As it was they did little with the replacement guy on a steamy Richmond afternoon. Two solo HRs were all the scoring this game had as the team's collected 7 hits apiece. Engel Beltre and Devin Harris were the "lightning in a bottle" stars for the Squirrels. For Harris, it was his first HR in a month (almost exactly, as his last was hit on July 1). Harris endured a brutal stretch since that last HR, hitting just .176/.211/.235 over his last 30 days. His reward for his 2 for 2 with a HR day was to get double-switched out of the game, and his replacement, Jesus Galindo also went 2 for 2, giving the LF position the line of the day.  Galindo has had just 50 at bats since being sent up to the EL on June 24 as he's been used as a 4th or 5th OF. It appears the one-time prospect is transitioning more or less to an org player in the Giants' thinking.

Joan Gregorio, whether through plan or exigency, is definitely transitioning back to SP, and I for one am glad to see it as he was doing little in relief that made him stand out in a crowd of potential future bullpen pieces. Hopefully, the opportunity to go back to starting this last month will allow him to take a big step forward on the org SP depth chart, as 2015 is, of course, the first of his three option years. He's done well so far. In four starts, he's allowed just 2 runs in 14.1 IP as he begins to stretch out. He's K'd 14, BB'd 3 in those starts.

Kyle Crick recorded a perfect inning with two K's in just 13 pitches. Three of his last four appearances have come on just one day's rest. We'll see if they start trying to get him back to back game opportunities in the final month of the year. I haven't seen Derek Law pitch yet this year, but I would guess from the stat lines we're seeing that his stuff and command aren't as crisp as before the injury, which isn't unusual and particularly isn't unusual for guys who depend as much on breaking stuff as Law does. I would hope that next year we'll see a nice leap for him in his ability to command the killer curve he throws.

Ryder Jones returned from the DL yesterday and immediately doubled in first AB since July 17. He did later make his 17th error of the year, but it was good to see his bat back in the lineup. Like Jones, Christian Arroyo, had just one hit in the game, but it was big one:

That was Arroyo's 6th HR of the year. Setting aside his 100 at bats in Augusta, it's pretty remarkable how similar his hitting lines have been in the AZL (.326/.388/.516), NWL (.329/.375/.465) and here in the Cal league.

The data revolution keeps on moving. It's pretty exciting to think about the data we could (should?) have available to us in the lower levels in the years to come:

One other injury note from SJ:

Another somewhat desultory affair in the hot hot HOT Georgia summer.  Michael Santos had a so-so day. He struck out 4 and walked none and allowed just 2 runs, but when he did give up contact it tended to be hard as four of his six hits allowed went for extra bases, including Tanner Murphy's solo HR which proved to be the winner.

Still, Santos' loose arm and good feel for pitching combine to make him one of the brightest SP prospects in the system:

A writeup on Santos is included in BPro's Monday morning Ten Pack today, courtesy of David Lee naturally. Subscriber only content, so you know what you must do!

As for the bats... oof! but that's a lot of OBP in the .280s. A .287 OBP isn't gonna cut it at any level guys! Let's get on that. Not much to highlight on this side of the game, but here's one of their two XBH on the day, courtesy of Jonah Arenado.

Finally, I command you to read (again stealing Russell Carleton's bit) David Lee's article on Tyler Cyr. You'll like it! And I guarantee everyone immediately begins rooting for Cyr to become a Giant.

Salem-Keizer hits the All Star break in 1st place in the week-old second half, and they went into the break with a highly successful five game homestand.

Hard to know who to highlight exactly, on the offensive side, in a game where 8 of the 9 starters had one hit but nobody reached base twice. An ecumenical attack I guess you'd say. All Star SP Andrew Leenhouts (who was also an NWL All Star two years ago), had another fine start. But Cory Taylor ran into some trouble which caused the game to be in doubt right down to it's final out, when Caleb Smith came into a bases loaded two-out situation and induced the game ending flyout.

You can see the Volcanoes TV full series recap here (again, SK's interns are doing just a fantastic job this summer)

Deiyerbert Bolivar made his first start of the year as he works back into game shape, and by and large it was a good outing. But the Giants staff got knocked around a bit by the Cubs in this one.  Stetson Woods second AZL campaign continues to be a bit of a scuffle, as does Randy Ortiz' pitcher conversion experiment.

Much more successful returns to the AZL are coming on the offensive side, where Kevin Rivera and Byron Murray continue to be offensive highlights for the team. Rivera, who just turned 19 this summer, will likely have trouble getting playing time amongst the various MI prospects in the low levels, but if he continues to get on the field (which Beltre has struggled with) and perform well, he'll get his opportunities. Murray had his 10th multi-hit game out of 25 played.
