The fifth inning sucks.  Albert Suarez and Matt Cain would both agree.

Albert Suarez ran into trouble in the fifth.  Sacramento was up 3-2 going into the top of the fifth, but Suarez got pounded to the tune of five hits, a walk, a wild pitch and a hit batter, and Suarez giving up six runs in the inning (including one coming in after he was relieved).  Though the River Cats offense wasn’t done, they could not keep up.  It was a difficult game, after Suarez struck out 11 in his last start.

The River Cats had several two-hit games from hitters, but no home runs.  Austin Slater had his fourth two-hit game in his last eight, raising his Sacramento average to .259.  Kelby Tomlinson had his second two-hit game in three days, after going a week without a single multi-hit game.  Mac Williamson continued his rehab stint, playing a full game for the first time, and getting his first hit…while striking out three times for the second time in three days.

Tyler Horan gave the Squirrels a last minute win.

With the game tied 1-1 going into the ninth inning, Tyler Horan hit his only hit of the game, a home run with one out to put the Squirrels ahead.  It was Horan’s second home run in as many games, his ninth of the season.  But in the second inning, Beede contributed to the win, getting a two-out single to knock in Ryder Jones for the Squirrels’ first run.

The offense held up an excellent start for Beede, although he did not get the win.  His nine strikeouts matched his season high for the third time this year, and only struggle coming on the home run he allowed in the sixth.  In the seventh, he allowed two runners before getting lifted, and it took a 1-2-3 double play induced by Tyler Mizenko to keep the game tied at one.  It’s too bad Beede was taken out so early for the offense, as he had two of the team’s eight hits.

In other (older) news, the team will see a new face soon…

The San Jose offense was just way too little and way too late.

Dan Slania suffered his worst outing as a starter, giving up a career high five runs, on seven hits and three walks.  It raised his season ERA at all levels to a still-respectable 2.54, and it comes off his first relief appearance since his switch, an appearance on what would have been his throwing day anyway during Austin Fleet’s poor start.  Between Slania and Carlos Diaz’s three runs allowed, the Giants were down 8-0 going into the 9th inning.

That was when the Giants got a little offense, thanks to some deep balls.  Dylan Davis had a one-out solo home run, and after Miguel Gomez walked, Aramis Garcia hit his first home run since returning from injury, a two-run shot to make it 8-3.  But that was all the Giants would get.

The GreenJackets broke a nine-game winning streak with a loss to Charleston.

The GreenJackets got started off fast, with a pair of singles, and speedster Johneshwy Fargas getting to third, and scoring on a wild pitch.  But the GreenJackets offense stalled outside Fargas.  Fargas collected three of the team’s six hits, and no one was knocking him in.

That meant that Charleston could tee off on Matt Solter.  Solter matched a season-worst by giving up in 11 hits, although without any walks, he did hold Charleston to only three runs, but with the GreenJackets offense stalled, he was on the hook for the loss.  Luis Pino gave up two runs, one earned, coming off of a spot start a few days ago.

The Volcanoes were the home team.  They won by four runs in extra innings.  That can mean only one thing…

The inning began with a Bryan Reynolds single, followed by Heath Quinn singling.  Ryan Kirby was intentionally walked, presumably to set up a force anywhere.  And after John Riley flew out to the center fielder in foul territory (Just going by the game log), Leo Rojas hit a grand walkoff slam to finish the game.

For Rojas, it was just his third home run of the season, after he had a two-home run game on his return to Salem-Keizer on August 7th.  Also, Heath Quinn got in on the home run trend, with a two-run home run in the third inning, his sixth of the season.

The pitching side featured a combined game, with 7th round pick Garrett Williams going just 3.1 innings, after giving up three runs.  Rayan Hernandez, a 34th round pick in 2013 picked up the lion’s share of the game, giving up just one run.  And Minor Lines favorite Patrick Ruotulo got the win, bouncing back from giving up his first earned runs of his career with a two-strikeout, two-hit performance in the 10th before the grand slam celebration.  He has 29 strikeouts against 10 walks and 10 hits in 15 innings.

This was just a rough game all around for the rookies.

The Giants managed only five hits, four of them off the bats of Woody Edwards and Malique Ziegler at the top of the lineup.  But it wasn’t them who scored the team’s only run.  That went to Cody Brickhouse, with no hits but he got on base three times by walk.  In the sixth, he drew a two-out walk, and moved to third on an error by the Mariners on a Michael Bernal ground ball, and he then came in to score on a wild pitch.

Meanwhile, Caleb Baragar had a decent day, but not a great one.  He allowed three runs, two earned.  Neither were a career high, but it was the first time since July 17th he’d given up more than one earned run.

The Giants defense and their best starter put the team in a first inning hole, from which they could not recover.

23-year old Orleny Quiroz has arguably been the DSL team’s best starter, but things were not going his way today.  He walked the first two batters he faced, and after a strikeout, a fielding error by first baseman Angeddy Almanzar loaded the bases.  Quiroz then gave up two straight singles, scoring two runs, and after a strikeout, gave up a three-run double, ending his day.

Though the bullpen did not fair much better, the offense was far too weak to do anything about it.  The Giants did outhit the Dodgers, 10-6, but had only two extra-base hits, a double by Angeddy Almanzar, his 15th, and Andres Angulo’s fifth of the year.  Angulo, hitting .219 on the year, was the team’s biggest bright spot, with three hits and two RBI on the day.

One bit of good news.  Francisco Medina, who left yesterday’s game with an apparent injury, played today, though he did commit his 27th error of the season.

Let’s finish this off with more looks to of the best way to finish a game.
