Saturday saw the opposite of a shut down inning in Sacramento.

Chris Heston was continuing to struggle in his return to Triple-A, giving up five runs in five innings of work, but the River Cats had come back.  In the 7th inning, Ruben Tejada tripled, and scored on a Mitch Delfino single.  That was followed by an Ali Castillo single and a Myles Schroeder ground rule double, which made the score 5-4.  After an intentional walk, Miguel Olivo hit a groundout which allowed Castillo to score and tie the game.  But then Jake Dunning came in from the bullpen.  Dunning walked the first batter he faced, and after getting a fly ball out, hit the next batter and issued a second walk to load the bases.  Vin Mazzaro was summoned to replace him, and Mazzaro served up a grand slam to Grizzlies batter Jon Kemmer, and the game was busted wide open.

Unfortunately for the River Cats, Tejada’s triple and Schroder’s double were their only extra-base hits.  For Tejada, it was his first triple of the year at any city, and Tejada is on a 7-game hit streak, in which he’s 10-for-25 (.400).  For Schroeder, it was his 6th double in Sacramento and 18th overall of the season.  For Heston, it was his second start in Triple-A since coming back from injury.  He gave up 6 runs in 4.2 inning in his last one, and his Triple-A ERA is 4.54 on the season now.  In garbage time, D.J. Myers made his Triple-A debut, with a strikeout and one hit given up.  Myers was a 15th round pick this year.

Richmond defeated Altoona (Pirates), 7-3

This game featured some ninth inning excitement.

The game was tied 2-2 going into the final frame, and with Jose Casilla pitching, Altoona collected a run on a double, a single and a groundout to take the late lead.  However, C.J. Hinojosa got things started in the bottom half of the inning with a one-out single, followed by a Brandon Bednar single.  Steven Lerud and Richard Amion then walked as Richmond got to the pitcher’s spot.  Ryder Jones came up to pinch hit, and hit a walkoff grand slam to end this game.

For Jones, it was his 14th home run of the year, and continues a nice post-All-Star run, which has him batting .276/.343/.428 in 42 games.  Meanwhile, Steven Duggar collected his first home run in Richmond in 58 games, after hitting nine in 70 games with San Jose.  Duggar did in on his second three-hit game in a row, raising his Richmond batting average to .328.

On the mound, Sam Coonrod had a mixed game, going five innings, given up four hits and four walks, with his two runs allowed unearned due to an error.  He did add four strikeouts to his total, giving him 38 in 77.1 innings.

San Jose lost to Visalia (Diamondbacks), 2-1

Visalia eeked out a win in a low-scoring San Jose game.

San Jose starter Mark Reyes was a bit victimized, taking the loss despite six innings and allowing just one unearned run.  That run came when Colin Bray reached on an error by T.J. Bennett, went to second on a ground out and came in on a single.  Visalia got another run on the seventh off the bullpen, when Wilson Santo hit the first batter he faced (Bray again), and Bray would come around to score on a single and two productive outs.  San Jose’s only run came in the eighth, as Robbie Garvey led the inning off witha  triple, and came in on a Rando Moreno single.

For Reyes, it was one of his best games in a month, as he had given up less than four earned runs just once going back his last five starts.  Reyes has 80 strikeouts and 60 walks in 127.1 innings this season.  At the plate, Garvey got on base three times, with his fourth triple of the season and now has 44 walks in 67 games.  Rando Moreno ahd his second two-hit game in a row, and sixth in the last ten games, raising his San Jose average from .200 to .261 in the process.  Meanwhile, Quinn also had two hits in his second game at San Jose.

The loss means the end of a streak.

After a hurricane, Augusta got the doubleheader in…and got knocked out.

Game 1 saw Michael Connolly struggle in one big inning, giving up back-to-back home runs, and an error leading to a two-run triple in a five run inning by Rome to take a big lead.  Augusta would scratch back, first with a two-run double by Bryan Reynolds in the third, and a Kelvin Beltre home run in the sixth.  With the Braves up 6-3 going into the final 7th inning, Bryan Reynolds led off with a single, and Matt Winn followed with a two-run home run to close the lead to one.  But despite a two-out Kelvin Beltre signal, the rally ended there, to a 6-5 loss.

Game 2 was not nearly as close.  The Braves got to starter Raffi Vizcaino early, as Vizcaino hit the first batter he faced, and eventually giving up a run in the inning.  Two more came in the third inning, as Rome went up 3-0.  Augusta got a pair of runs in the fourth, on a Matt Pare RBI double and a Jean Angomas RBI triple.  In the sixth, however, the Braves got to reliever Connor Kaden, scoring three runs and putting the game out of reach.

With the double-header sweep, Augusta is knocked out of playoff contention, and Rome will advance to face the Charleston RiverDogs in the SAL playoffs.

One of Minor Lines favorite young pitchers failed the Volcanoes tonight.

The Volcanoes managed to take a 4-3 lead in the 8th inning, as Gio Brusa tripled and scored on an error, and the Volcanoes brought in Patrick Ruotolo to get the save.  However, Ruotolo allowed singles to the first two batters he faced.  A sacrifice bunt moved the runners over, and a sacrifice fly tied the game.  Then, catcher John Riley suffered a passed ball, and the winning run came in for Boise.

That passed ball, one of two suffered by Riley, overshadowed what had been an excellent game for him offensively, as he hit his 10th double and third home run of the season, reaching base three times.  Riley had been suffering offensively, going just 2-for-22 in his previous six games.  Gio Brusa, however, kept up his strong hitting, getting his third triple of the year.  While Brusa is batting just .259, he is slugging .491.  This game also saw three players get their first steals of their Salem-Keizer seasons: Brusa, third baseman Nick Hill, and left fielder Jacob Heyward.

The pitching side saw Mac Marshall generally keep runs off the board, but last year’s fourth round pick continued to struggle with control, with six walks.  He now has 48 walks in 51.1 innings, with 54 strikeouts.
