A dreary, winless day.

Augusta picked up its first hit in the 6th inning yesterday, and got shut out through 8 innings. They ended up scoring 2 runs in 12 innings. It was the biggest offensive output of the night.

A tale of two opposing streaks.

After he returned from his first trip to the majors this year, Mac Williamson was red-hot in Sacramento. But that hasn't been the case following his most recent visit to the Show. Since returning from San Francisco on May 9, Williamson is now just 2 for 22 with 6 Ks and 3 BBs.

Meanwhile, Jarrett Parker's numbers keep going up and up. With three hits in each of his last two games his average has risen nearly 40 points in 48 hours. And along with the HR tear he's been on, Parker's contact rates have been the best he's shown in... well, maybe ever.  Since his 3-HR game in Salt Lake City on May 1, Parker has had just 5 Ks (vs. 4 BBs) in 43 ABs. What have you done with our Jarrett, Zombie Parker?!? Parker had three of the team's seven hits in this game.

Chris Stratton entered this game with a 6.57 ERA. It did not go down. He wasn't stung by the big inning in this one, but rather got himself into little trouble consistently, allowing runs in four of the six innings he worked.

Ronnie Jebavy led off the game with a single. Steven Duggar immediately doubled him home with the game's first run. And that was pretty much all the offense the Giants would muster in this game. They would never score again and collected just two hits the rest of the game, along with three walks. Jebavy and Duggar accounted for five of the seven base runners San Jose managed in the game, as Nuts starter Yency Almonte shut the Giants down over 7.2 IP.

Jason Forjet ended 2015 with a flurry, throwing 22 straight scoreless innings to end the season. He picked up where he left off in his 2016 debut, throwing 5 shutout innings on one hit. But since then the magic has left him as he's give up 19 runs, 16 earned, over his last 27.2 innings, a streak that reaches over his last five starts. With staff ace Andrew Suarez moved up to AA, it would be nice if Forjet could find the old form to help replace him. As it is, the rotation really looks to have a weak back half right now, with Forjet and Reyes both pushing 4.5 - 5.00 ERAs while the rest of the staff sits comfortably at or below 3.

There is one bit of good offensive news on this day:

San Jose wasn't the only team to get man-handled by a Colorado pitching prospect today. Lefty Dylan Craig completely throttled Augusta, allowing just three hits over 8 shutout innings. Craig didn't surrender his first hit of the game until Seth Harrison singled to lead off the 6th, and was in total command throughout.

However, heading into the 9th down 2-0, the Greenjackets were gifted a rally, as Lucius Fox and Jalen Miller were each walked on five pitches to open up the inning. Matt Winn cashed in the free runs by tripling off the wall to tie the game with one out. But that excitement led to a lot of frustration as the team failed repeatedly to simply make contact when outs could have won the game over and again.

Miguel Gomez K'd on three (very poor) pitches with Winn on 3b and Gustavo Cabrera grounded back to the pitcher to send it to extras. In the 10th, Augusta again had a leadoff walk and pushed him to 2nd with a Sac Bunt. But Manuel Geraldo's liner found a glove and again the rally came to nothing. In the 11th, Dillon Dobson led off with a triple but again they couldn't find the crucial productive out (at the least).  This time, cruelly, it was the team's best hitter -- Matt Winn -- who K'd. Then after two IBB to load the bases, Seth Harrison too, failed to make contact, and a flyout ended their final threat.

In the 12th, Tyler Cyr, who had pitched so well over four innings, was done in by two infield singles and a Lucius Fox throwing error to complete another frustrating loss for Augusta which has come so close to so many victories that have just slipped through their fingers.

Michael Santos was almost constantly in danger in this game, allowing 10 hits, but mostly snuck through it all.  His greatest escape came in the 4th, when a double, two singles and a walk managed to score just one run (on the walk). He's now gone 8 innings in back to back starts, surrendering just two runs in each, and has a 33/4 K/BB ratio this year over 41.2 IP.
