SF Giants Minor Lines, 8/16

A Grand Slam for Junior Arias, a nice game for Sam Coonrod if you don't look at the strikeouts, and don't look at Salem-Keizer. Like, at all.

Sacramento lost to Iowa (Cubs), 5-1

One rough inning for Ty Blach was enough to derail this game for the River Cats.

The Cats were up 1-0 going into the fifth inning when Blach had some troubles.  He walked the first batter of the inning, then after a strikeout, gave up a single and another walk to load the bases.  He then balked in the tying run.  A sacrifice fly gave Iowa the lead, and then he gave up three more singles to allow four runs to the Cubs.  The game is a poor followup to Blach’s shutout in his last game.

Meanwhile, the Sacramento offense was mostly punchless, with seven hits but only two for extra base.  Miguel Olivo had his fourth triple of the season (remember, he’s a catcher) en route to scoring the only River Cats run, as it was followed by Grant Green’s double, his 15th with Sacramento this year.  One note was that this was the second rehab game for Mac Williamson, who had a day off after playing on the 14th as well.

A pair of home runs lead the Squirrels to a win tonight.

Down 1-0 in the fifth inning, Tyler Horan hit a leadoff home run to tie the game up.  The Squirrels would then take the lead after a Steven Lerud double and a passed ball, setting up a Christian Arroyo sacrifice fly for a 2-1 lead.  Ryder Jones then homered in the sixth inning to make it 3-1.  That would be enough for Sam Coonrod.

Coonrod had another fine outing, almost identical to his last.  Coonrod went six innings, allowing three hits, one earned run, with three walks and one strikeout.  All those numbers are identical to his last outing, the only difference was that he gave up a home run this time.  In Richmond, Coonrod now had just 34 strikeouts in 61 innings, against 29 walks.  The bullpen took the rest of it, notably including Rodolfo Martinez pitching the eighth inning instead of the ninth.  He bounced back from giving up three runs his last time out to having a scoreless inning in this game.

For Horan, he had his eighth home run of the season, and his first since June 28th.  Jones had his 13th of the year, and he has three in his last nine games.

Miguel Gomez isn’t showing the batting average he did in Augusta, but he is showing some power.

Gomez hit his fifth home run with the Giants with two out in the ninth to ice a 3-1 victory for the Giants.  For Gomez, it is his third home run out of his last six hits, which have been scattered over eight games.  Gomez had eight home runs in Augusta in 66 games, and now has 5 in 25 with the Giants.  Dylan Davis also joined the power parade, his fourth in six games, eighth with San Jose and 21st overall.  The 2014 2rd round pick has really emerged as a quiet power outfield prospect, and is batting .300 with San Jose.  T.J. Bennett, meanwhile, had a two-hit game, and is 6-for-11 over his last three games, raising his batting average to .301 with San Jose.

The power helped Jose Reyes’ start stand up.  Reyes bounced back from some rough games to allow just one earned run for the first time since July 23rd.  In his last outing he had no strikeouts, but came back with six today, giving him 56 in 87.2 innings this season.  He was helped by three fine innings of relief from Jeff Soptic, who has struggled.  Soptic had been scored upon in each of his last three outings.

One big inning, and one big swing, led to a GreenJacket win.

Leading 1-0 in the fourth, the GreenJackets collected three straight hits.  Dillon Dobson led off the inning with a double, and Matt Winn singled him home for the first run of the inning.  Matt Pare then also singled, and Skyler Ewing walked to load the bases for Junior Arias.  Arias then hit his 9th home run of the season, and the grand slam put the GreenJackets up 6-0 in the game.

For Arias the home run puts him within two of his total last season in the Florida State League (High-A).  His career-high in a season is 15, between the Midwest League (A) and the California League in 2013 as part of the Reds organization.  Dobson’s three-hit day is his sixth three-hit day of the season, but the first with each being doubles, giving him 24 on the season.

Domenic Mazza had a solid start for the GreenJackets, though it broke a string of three straight scoreless starts for the 22-year old.  He now has 63 strikeouts against 13 walks in 68 innings on the year.  Charles Owen’s solid start to his year continued, although he gave up his first walk of the year (in 6 appearances).

The Volcanoes pretty much sucked on both sides of the ball today.

Mac Marshall’s control issues continued, not getting through an inning as he walked four and gave up a hit in 2/3 of an inning.  For Marshall, he now has 32 walks against 34 strikeouts in 36.1 innings at Salem-Keizer, not to mention 40 hits allowed.  That’s a 1.98 WHIP.  The bullpen didn’t do much better, but Kendry Melo did have two nice innings in relief, which snapped a string of four appearances in which he had been scored upon.

The offense wasn’t much better, as the Volcanoes struggled to just three hits and four walks.  Catcher John Riley was the top performer, the only Volcano to get on base twice, and to get an extra-base hit (his ninth double of the season).  Gustavo Cabrera also got another hit, as he hovers right around a .250 average with Salem-Keizer.  He’s been 10-for-40 in his last ten games.

Sandro Fabian had a big game to help the AZL team to this win.

Fabian’s 4-for-5 day highlighted the win, including an important single in an error-filled 10th inning rally to win the game.  The Giants got two runners on thanks to errors, first Mikey Edie reaching on a strikeout with a throwing error by the catcher, and then Nick Hill on an error by the shortstop.  Fabian singled to knock in what would be the winning run, the only hit of the inning, though the Giants got an insurance run thanks to a double steal, with Hill stealing home.

Fabian had a season-high in hits, raising his average to .345 on the season, with a .372 OBP and a .563 SLG, and also netted his second steal of the year.  Jose Layer was the team’s other big offensive threat, with two hits, a walk and a steal as well (his first of the year).  The pitching was a team effort, with starter Alex Bostic only going two innings, removed after giving up two hits and three walks.  Sidney Duprey got a start in relief, however, pitching the final five innings of regulation, his longest stint in his six appearances this year.

A new home aside, the Giants had a good offensive game against the D-Backs squad, although the D-Backs pitching helped.

The Giants collected 8 hits, but also collected 13 walks from the D-Backs, en route to this win.  In fact, no DSL hitter got more than one hit.  The biggest hit was from Andres Angulo, who hit a three-run home run, his first of the season, in the 5th inning.  However, not all was good news on that front.  Francisco Medina was apparently injured  in the first inning, sliding into third base.  He came out of the game.  No news has been found on him yet.

Aneudy Acosta did what was needed for the win, almost matching his season high six innings, and allowing just two runs on the day.  His six strikeouts were also one short of his season high.
