Remember when the rain was interrupting everything on the west coast? Haha, good times…

Tyler Beede didn’t have his most dominating start, but with the help of the bullpen, it was enough to get a win for the struggling River Cats. I’ll just blame the cake he probably had for his birthday.
Tyler Beede entered game w/ 57.3 GB%. More of same tonight. 5 of 9 outs have been GBs. FB is 92-93, t94. CT 88-89. Trying to get feel for CH— Giant Potential (@giant_potential) May 24, 2017
Beede limited the Redbirds to just four hits, but did allow three walks, giving up a pair of runs. It was Beede’s first time giving up three walks in a game since April 24th. Beede now has 32 strikeouts and 18 walks in 49 innings this season. The bullpen followed Beede up with 3.2 innings of shutout ball. Kyle Crick bounced back from giving up a run in his last outing. He now has 25 strikeouts and 8 walks in 18.2 IP.
Kyle Crick tonight: 4SFB (95-97), CH (89), SL (81-83). Scoreless 9th with a single. 24 pitches, 15 strikes.— Giant Potential (@giant_potential) May 24, 2017
At the plate, Aaron Hill may be ready to come back. He had a triple and a home run to lead the River Cats. Conor Gillaspie, meanwhile, played just five innings, as he has in each of his five rehab games.
But, among the non-rehabbing Giants, there were some good performances. Kelby Tomlinson collected three hits for the third time this season, but hit just his third extra-base hit with his third double. Meanwhile, Austin Slater picked up a pair of hits to raise his average to .313.
There’s a roster change in the wind:
LHP DJ Snelten not yet in Sacramento. Arriving late tonight from back east. Should be activated tomorrow for #RiverCats— Giant Potential (@giant_potential) May 24, 2017
And Tyler Beede is now 24. Happy Birthday, Tyler!
Richmond and Binghamton: Postponed
Tonight's game has been postponed due to inclement weather. Tomorrow will be a double header with gates opening at 4PM for a 4:35PM start. pic.twitter.com/8i2XaD5Noh— Squirrels Baseball (@GoSquirrels) May 23, 2017
So, apparently it’s raining on the east coast. Richmond and Binghamton will be attempting to make this one up on Wednesday.

Maybe it was raining in Lancaster, too? There was only three home runs, and nine runs scored in total.
Mike Connolly did get victimized by the home run park, giving up two 2-run home runs to the JetHawks, but in Lancaster that’s not a bad job of pitching. But Connolly has struggled recently, with his ERA jumping from 1.78 to 3.40 over his last two starts.
For the Giants, the lone home run was by Gio Brusa, who broke a three-way tie for the team lead with his 7th home run of the season in the 6th inning. Brusa seems to have come alive now that Heath Quinn has come back, with Brusa having hit three home runs in five games, and a .341 batting average over his last ten games. Brusa’s batting average is up to .229, and he’s still having problems with strikeouts (51:15 K:BB ratio in 140 at-bats).
Meanwhile, Quinn continued his strong hitting since his return, with his third multi-hit game in eight this season. Quinn is batting .355 with a .429 OBP, and six strikeouts against 3 walks in his 8 games played so far this season. Ryan Howard also continued his hitting strea, now up to 6 games. He’s 10-for-27 (.370) in that span.
Augusta and West Virginia Game 1: Cancelled
Augusta and West Virginia Game 2: Postponed
If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. If you don’t succeed a second time, just cancel the thing. The GreenJackets cancelled one of the two games postponed Tuesday night, and will try to make the second game up on Wednesday with another double-header.
There might be a lot of baseball tomorrow.
