Lighting up scoreboards from coast to coast!

How good was Adalberto Mejia last night? As a hitter, he reached base twice and scored a run. As a pitcher, he allowed just four baserunners and no runs. When your pitcher is providing more offense than he's allowing? That's a good night!

HIGHLIGHTS: Mejia threw 7 shutout innings with 6 Ks; the top of the San Jose order went crazy.

Sacramento lost to Colorado Springs Sky Sox (Brewers), 9-6

Mac Williamson had a "Me, too, please" sort of night after seeing teammate Jarrett Parker promoted to the major league lineup. Mac provided most of Sacramento's XBH on the night, with a double and HR, raising his SLG to .544 for the PCL season.

Both came off Taylor Jungmann who started the year in the Brewers rotation after a fairly successful rookie campaign last year. 2016 hasn't gone so well for Jungmann. Sacramento jumped on him for four runs over the first five innings, helping them to overcome Matt Lujan's spotty start. The RiverCats lineup posted 12 hits in the game and 6 BBs plus a HBP. Six different members of the starting lineup reached base multiple times, led by Gorkys Hernandez who reached four times himself and had the team's only other XBH.

Andrew Susac celebrated his return to the Sacramento lineup by reaching base three times. It was Susac's first game with the RiverCats in nearly a month (April 26) and only his 12th game of the season overall.

Best view in the house. Let's go Susac! ⚾️ #Sacramento #rivercats #clawsup #sfgiants #baseball

Clinging to a 6-5 lead in the 8th, Duke Welker was ambushed by a big four-run rally which ended Sacramento's very brief two game winning streak (is two games a streak? Seems like in Major League, Lou Brown said you had to get to three for it to be a streak).

Adalberto Mejia might be thinking "Me, too, please" as well, angling to join his friend Joan Gregorio in Sacramento.  Mejia has really been shoving it lately. Since his disaster start on April 26, when he failed to make it out of the first, he's been simply sensational.  The numbers for May: four starts, 28 IP, 0.96 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, .199 BAA, with 18 Ks against 6 BBs. Mejia now has 38 starts in AA over three years, and over 2015/16 he's put up an ERA of about 2.30 over 95 IP. Might be time for AAA for Adalberto!

Mejia also managed to work two walks as a hitter, one of which was in the middle of Richmond's first scoring rally, culminated by Austin Slater's two-out, two-run double.

In all, the Squirrels drew five walks in this game and two of those ended up scoring runs. There's a lesson to be learned here, for the the team with (by far) the fewest walks in the league!

Today's Bill Thompson Award goes to the Binghamton announcers: "Fouled off... uh er... uh..." Christian Arroyo continued his recent hot hitting, with his third consecutive multi-hit game. Arroyo now has a modest 7-game hitting streak going, during which he's gone 12 for 32 with a HR and three doubles. He has also had 7 Ks and 0 BBs during that stretch and learning to balance his aggressiveness with discretion is probably the biggest development leap he has in front of him at this point. Arroyo played his 9th game of the year at 3b in this one; he's also played 6 games at 2b.

The Giants continue to roll, even into Visalia! They put a hurting on the Diamondbacks #17 prospect Brad Keller, simply ambushing him from the very start. The top of the first began: walk, HR, HR, double, double. And those top five continued to perform like a Murderers Row the whole night. In all those first five batters in the order (listed above) reached base an astounding 17 times, including four HRs, three doubles and give walks. That was Duggar's 7th HR, Jebavy's 2nd, and Hinojosa's 3rd and 4th. Right now this is looking like the best offensive lineup they've had in San Jose in many a year.

On the mound, Sam Coonrod labored through 5.2 IP, passing the 100-pitch mark before getting through the 6th (not the full on Russ Ortiz: for that you have to hit 100 pitches before qualifying for the win). But despite 4 BBs and a HB, Coonrod continued putting zeros on the board. In fact, the only run on his record last night came when Dusten Knight served a HR to the first batter he faced, allowing Coonrod's final walk to score as well.

Despite his struggles, however, Coonrod won his 4th straight game and lowered his ERA to a microscopic 1.38.

Finale note: The Giants made a couple of roster moves before the game, as the struggling Johneshwy Fargas was sent back down to Augusta. To take his place, the formerly struggling Daniel Carbonell was brought back from XST.

Not too much to say about this old fashioned shellacking. Logan Webb most certainly did NOT continue where he left off in his excellent previous outing, getting knocked out int he 5th in this one with 8 runs on his ledger. Also, Ryan Halstead continues to struggle and has to be getting pretty close to a trip to XST to work on things. He's now allowed 10 of his last 17 batters faced to score. Caleb Smith now has three straight scoreless and hitless with 5 Ks in those 3 IP.

On offense, well... every base runner they managed is in the box. Six baserunners, 14 Ks = not a good night for the bats. Miguel Gomez continues to hit, and Gustavo Cabrera is finding the barrel a little more, both of which are positive signs. The loudest contact of the night came again from Jalen Miller, and since I love me a good Jalen Miller highlight:

The Greenjackets have one more chance to salvage a win in this important series this morning before returning home.
