AA: Richmond 4, Bowie 3 (10 Innings)
- Heliot Ramos was just 1-for-5, but picked up his second home run in three games, giving him seven on the season. His 8th inning home run tied the game, forcing extra innings.
- David Villar’s 3-hit game was his first since June 22nd, when he had a double and a home run. Today, he just had singles, raising his batting average to .253.
- Vince Fernandez picked up his ninth home run of the season, and he’s on the verge of his fourth straight season of double-digit home runs. He had 15 in 2019 playing with Hartford in the Rockies organization.
- Simon Whiteman picked up his first steal in 10 games, after stealing six in his first 10 games. Whiteman now has 7, ten steals behind the league leader.
- Starter Luis Amaya didn’t give up any hits, but struggled with walks, giving up five as he matched a season high with 3.0 innings. This was his first professional start, in a career that goes back to 2015.
- Mac Marshall made his first appearance since June 5th, coming back from injury with one of his better appearances. He now has 17 strikeouts to 13 walks in 12.2 innings after some early season struggles.
- Joey Marciano has really hit a rough spot, as he had his third straight game giving up multiple runs. His ERA has gone from 1.42 to 4.50 over his last three games.
- Frank Rubio bounced back from giving up a pair of runs in his last game to not allow a hit this time out.
- R.J. Dabovich needed a strong game after having his worst game as a pro, allowing five runs in an inning his last time out. Dabovich struck out the side, settling his ERA a little back to 8.10 from the 11.12 it was beforehand.
High-A: Everett 10, Eugene 2
- Starter Aaron Phillips came off of one of his best starts of the season, and had his worst, giving up eight runs on eight hits and four walks. His ERA jumped from 4.91 to 6.46 in this start.
- Sean Roby picked up his first home run in seven games, giving him a season total of six. That’s a new career high for a season, as he had hit five in each of his previous two seasons. It took him 37 games to get to six, as it took him 56 games in 2019, and 45 games in 2018, to reach five home runs.
- Austin Reich made his Double-A debut with a season-high tying 2.2 innings, striking out five of the eight batters he faced and not allowing a baserunner. Reich had a 1.73 ERA in 16 games with San Jose. There, he’d struck out 47 and walked nine in 26.0 innings.
Low-A: Fresno 4, San Jose 3 (10 Innings)
San Jose Notes:
- Jairo Pomares is living his best life right now. After going 4-for-4 with a double and a home run, he’s done that line twice in a row. That’s hits in eight straight plate appearances! The last time Pomares made an out was July 4th, when he led off the 9th inning and popped up a 1-0 pitch to the infield. Pomares now has a .386/.442/.786 batting line.
- Prelander Berroa had a solid game, allowed three runs, but just two earned, on four hits and two walks. It was Berroa’s first start since June 2nd in which he allowed more than two runs. Berroa has a 3.24 ERA across 12 starts in 2021. Berroa had 12 appearances in 2019 (11 starts), he had a 5.86 ERA.
- Ty Weber took the loss in extras, allowing the one unearned run, as a sacrifice bunt set up a single to score the deciding run. Weber has a 2.81 ERA on the season.
