AAA: Las Vegas 7, Sacramento 5


Sacramento Notes:

  • Tommy La Stella got into his second rehab game, playing second base, and hit a home run on a 1-for-2 day with a HBP.  La Stella played defense through the top of the 6th and was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the 6th.
  • Also rehabbing was Evan Longoria, going 1-for-3.  Like La Stella, he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the 6th inning.
  • David Villar got into the game after Evan Longoria left, and was 1-for-1 with a double and a HBP.  Villar’s double was his third of the season, to go along with eight home runs and a triple over 24 games.
  • Jhonny Perada had a 2-hit game, and now has hits in six of his last seven games, with three multi-hit games.  Though he’s only played 12 games, he’s batting .326/.362/.419.
  • Tristan Beck made his second start at Triple-A, and struggled again, with five runs given up on seven hits and two walks, with two of those hits being home runs.  Beck has a 11.17 ERA through two starts at Sacramento, after having a 2.57 ERA in three starts at Double-A Richmond.
  • Making his official in-game return from San Francisco, Yunior Marte gave up two unearned runs on two walks and a hit, with an error at first base.  It was Marte’s first game in Triple-A since April 15th.  Marte has a 4.05 ERA in just five games at Triple-A this season, after posting a 7.04 ERA in eight games with San Francisco.

AA: Richmond 6, Akron 3


Richmond Notes:

  • It was a big game for Franklin Labour, as he hit two home runs, giving him four on the season.  Labour is batting just .194 on the season, but since the start of May, he’s gone 3-for-14 (.214) with all three hits being home runs.
  • Rob Emery was 2-for-3 with a double, playing in his first game since May 1st.  He was also 2-for-3 with a double in that game as well.  Emery is batting .243 (9-for-37) with two doubles and two home runs in 13 games.
  • Brandon Martorano was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk.  Martorano is 12-for-59 (.203) on the year, with five doubles and two home runs in 17 games so far this year.  Last season, across three levels, Martorano had nine doubles, three triples and nine home runs in 64 games.
  • Shane Matheny was 1-for-3 with a walk, and picked up his first steal of the season.  In 4 games since the start of May, Matheny is 5-for-15 (.333) with a double, two home runs, and three walks to two strikeouts.

  • Taylor Rashi’s fine season continued, striking out two without allowing a baserunner.  In 9.2 innings this season, Rashi has allowed just three hits and four walks, with 16.2 innings.

High-A: Game Canceled

Eugene Notes:

  • This game was canceled outright, presumably because this was Hillsboro’s last visit to Eugene in the first half.  The two teams were already scheduled to play a double-header on Saturday.  Hillsboro will visit Eugene again in late July.  This is the team’s first truly lost game of the season.

Low-A: San Jose 8, Stockton 5


San Jose Notes:

  • Victor Bericoto led a home run explosion in San Jose, going 3-for-4 with his third home run and a walk.  Bericoto is 13-for-70 on the season (.186), but has a .352 on-base percentage with 17 walks against 27 strikeouts.  His home run was the first of three in the Giants’ 3-home run 7th inning.
