Unlike yesterday, the River Cats fell behind early in today’s loss.

Three of the first four batters scored against Clayton Blackburn, with two home runs accounting for those runs.  Blackburn also gave up a triple to lead off the second to lead to a second run.  Although Blackburn ended up with a respectable four runs in six innings, it was enough for his third straight loss.  The bullpen, however, went through the rest of the game without allowing a hit, only Tyler Rogers’ walk.  With Sacramento, Rogers has given up 14 walks and struck out 14 in 20 innings.  And Josh Osich’s rehab continues

The offense, unfortunately, was soft once again, collecting only six hit, and one extra-base hit.  Gorkys Hernandez did lead the way, getting on base three times and hitting the only double.  He has a .383 OBP on the season now with Sacramento.  Ali Castillo also got on base three times, with two hits and a walk, raising his Sacramento OBP to .369 in 36 games.

Richmond was defeated by Reading (Phillies), 6-3

Andrew Suarez had been on a nice roll, but it ended today.

Suarez was touched up for 10 hits, tying a season-high, and three walks as five runs were put on the board against him.  For Suarez, it was his first time giving up more than three earned runs since the start of July.  His WHIP in Richmond bounced back up to 1.44 for the year.

The rough start was compounded by a Richmond offense that couldn’t hit for extra bases.  The Squirrels matched the Phils with 12 hits, but the Phils had five doubles, and the Squirrels didn’t get a single extra base.  The Squirrels were led by Hunter Cole’s four-hit day, a season high for him.  The 23-year old has been hot recently, going 8-for-18 in his last four games, and is batting .275/.327/.428 on the year.  Ryder Jones also inched closer to batting .250 with another two-hit game.  He is 13-for-28 (.342) over his last ten games, and is batting .301/.371/.476 since the All-Star Break.

It was all power in Bakersfield.

The Giants knocked in 8 of their 10 runs, including the deciding run in the ninth inning, as a part of a season-high 5 home run night.  It got started as Ronnie Jebavy hit a solo home run in the third, and then Jonah Arenado hit a two-run shot later in the inning to make it 3-0.  The Giants got a run in the fourth, but fell behind 6-4 after a big inning by Bakersfield.  The Giants followed it with their own big inning in the 5th, all with two outs, as Miguel Gomez singled, Daniel Carbonell reached after striking out, and T.J. Bennett hit a three-run homer, followed by a Ty Ross homer to make it 8-6.  The teams would tie the game at 9 in the sixth inning, and it stayed that way until the 9th, when Bennett hit his second home run of the game to give the Giants the lead for good.

That helped the Giants pitching staff survive a live field and a costly error  Connor Menez gave up two runs early in that big fourth inning, but an error by Miguel Gomez extended the inning and meant four runs were unearned, three coming in after Menez was lifted and left the bases loaded for Austin Fleet.  Other than three inherited runners, Fleet also let in three of his own, raising his San Jose ERA to 6.75.  He has allowed eight runs in his last two games (5 innings).

Jebavy’s home run was his 11th of the year, and is on the cusp of a .400 SLG, with it sitting at .399.  For Arenado, his home run was his first since hitting three in three games over the weekend.  Ross hit just his fourth home run in 70 games this season, but second in the last four games.  Bennett raised his total to 7 in 55 games with his first two-home run game.  The midseason free agent is batting .312/.376/.524 in San Jose this year.

Augusta’s losing streak hit two games, and reduced their division lead to 3.5 games as Charleston beat them again.

Augusta offense went south, as did their defense, as the team collected only six hits but also collect four errors.  Matt Winn picked up two hits, including his 13th double in Augusta, raising his average to .243.  In 84 games, Winn has almost as many home runs (12) as doubles.  The other two hit game came from Jean Angomas, his third such game in the last five for him.  Angomas is batting .410 (16-for-39) over his last ten games, and has raised his Augusta batting average to .250.  However, the team collected four errors, including ones by Winn (8), Jake McCasland (2), Richard Amion (12), and Dillon Dobson (14).

However, despite the four errors, all six of Charleston’s runs were earned.  Jake McCasland got the loss, despite a pretty solid pitching line.  Two runs in six innings was enough to raise the 24-year old’s ERA from 1.59 to 1.68, and he still has a 0.96 WHIP.  Connor Kaden has allowed three runs in his last two outings, raising his ERA from 3.75 to 3.96.  Cesar Yanez, who had a 0.60 ERA in 12 Salem-Keizer appearances before a promotion has hit some road bumps in Augusta, with a 7.04 ERA in 9 appearances (7.2 IP).

Speaking of McCasland, MiLB has a nice piece on the 24-year old, talking about how the organization hasn’t given up on him and how hard he’s worked, and what has changed.

Lots and lots of hits for the Volcanoes coming off of last night’s grand slam walkoff.

The Volcano offense combined for 15 hits, including seven in a 6-run 7th inning to seal the game.  Gio Brusa led the way with a three-hit game, and his eighth home run of the season, and fourth in the last nine games.  Brusa’s batting line is now .272/.316/.500.  Leo Rojas, who had last night’s game winner, hit two doubles to give him four on the season, raising his average to .260.  Bryan Reynolds had his second straight two-hit game, giving him a five-game hitting streak.  He’s 8-for-24 (.333) over that span.

For all the hitting, the pitching suffered.  Melvin Adon gave up 11 baserunners in five innings, and has a WHIP of 1.91 with an average against of .324.  He also had 2 wild pitches, which didn’t look bad next to Matt Pope.  In 2 innings, with four wild pitches, Pop has a 2.30 WHIP in Augusta with a .343 batting average against.  Maybe there was something on the mound, though, as the teams combined for 11 wild pitches on the day.

Chris Heston’s rehab wasn’t just the news of this game, it set the tone.

The MLB No-Hitter alum was strong in his second AZL appearance, and his four scoreless innings set the tone for the game.  Combined with D.J. Myers’ scoreless five innings following him, and perhaps outshining him, it was one of the best pitched games for the AZL team this year.  Myers, a 15th round pick, turned in his first hitless outing of the season.  He has 46 strikeouts against 4 walks in 47.1 innings, though he has allowed 55 hits (.282 average allowed).  Heston went 2.2 innings in his first rehab appearance on the 13th.

That was enough for an offense that managed six runs on six hits.  All six came in the second inning, when the Giants would net five runs, highlighted by Connor Sabanosh’s two-run double.  They did get an extra run in the sixth thanks to some White Sox wildness, with a hit-by-pitch, two walks, and a sacrifice fly.  For Sabanosh, the double was his second in 12 games for the AZL this year.  Also notable was Kelvin Beltre, making his first rehab appearance since going on the DL from Augusta in Mid-June

The DSL Giants lost to the Dodgers1 team, 4-2

The DSL team lost this game with a flurry of late action.

The Giants led 1-0 going into the sixth inning behind a one-hit performance by Norwith Gudino, but the bullpen suffered.  Jose Yan relieved Gudino and walked two batters, one of which Oliver Pinto allowed to score after relieving Yan.  The Dodgers would then take the lead in the eighth with a run, and score two more in the ninth.  The Giants used two walks and a single in the ninth to get one more run, but the rally fell short.

Gudino had one of his strongest starts of the year, and has been unscored upon in three of his last four starts.  He has 37 strikeouts and 12 walks in 47.2 inning of work.
