AAA: Las Vegas 3, Sacramento 1


Sacramento Notes:

  • Evan Longoria had a 2-hit game in his fifth rehab start, playing nearly the entire game as DH before being lifted for a pinch runner in the bottom of the 9th after his single made him the potential tying run on base.  Longoria is 5-for-18 with seven strikeouts in five games at Triple-A.
  • Also making a rehab start was Tommy La Stella, though La Stella only played four innings before being replaced, and went 0-for-2.  Through four rehab games, La Stella is 2-for-10 with a home run, and two walks but no strikeouts.
  • Luke Williams had his first multi-hit game since returning from his latest stint in the big leagues, going 2-for-4 with his third Triple-A double.  In six total games at Sacramento, Williams is hitting .476/.500/.619.
  • Enmanuel De Jesus took the start for the River Cats, allowed, three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks in 4.0 innings.  That did drop his ERA slightly, from 5.51 to 5.31 on the year.  He’s struck out 25 to 10 walks in 20.1 innings this season.
  • Joey Marciano threw two solid innings, allowing a hit and two walks, with two strikeouts.  Marciano has just a 1.46 ERA, but only 11 strikeouts to eight walks in 12.1 innings this season.
  • Mauricio Llovera made his return to Sacramento after a solid stint in San Francisco, and remains unscored upon in Triple-A.  Llovera has 15 strikeouts to two walks in 11.2 innings at Sac, while he allowed one run with five strikeouts to no walks in 4.0 innings with the Giants.
  • Jason Vosler made the only big highlight play for Sacramento today, looking very nice with the glove at third.

AA: Akron 9, Richmond 1


Richmond Notes:

  • Franklin Labour was unable to finish the game after a productive game.  Labour was 1-for-1 with his third double of the season, got hit by a pitch, and stole his first base of the season.  Although Labour stayed in after getting hit, and stole a base after getting hit, he was removed at his next at-bat for a pinch hitter.
  • A day after hitting his first home run of the season, Rob Emery hit his first triple of the year (and his pro career).  Emery is batting .229/.309/.375 after 16 games played this season.
  • Kai-Wei Teng had a tough game, giving up six runs but just three of them being earned over 4.0 innings.  Teng gave up seven hits, two walks, and three wild pitches, while striking out just four.  The four strikeouts tie for a season-low in any game this season for Teng, who has 34 strikeouts to 15 walks in 28.0 IP.  The three wild pitches were Teng’s first on the year.
  • Taylor Rashi’s goose egg ERA continued with a scoreless inning, allowing no baserunners nor striking anyone out.  Through nine games, Rashi hasn’t allowed any runs, with 16 strikeouts to four walks in 10.2 innings.
  • Chris Wright walked one and struck out one in a scoreless inning.  Wright has just a 1.64 ERA, but has nine strikeouts to eight walks in 11.0 innings.  Last season, he had 79 strikeouts to 21 walks in 45.0 innings across both Single-A levels.

High-A: Eugene 10, Hillsboro 5 (8 Innings)


Eugene Notes:

  • Carter Aldrete had a 2-hit night, picking up his second home run of the year.  Aldrete’s first home run of the year came just over a week ago on May 1st.  Aldrete is 8-for-43 in 16 (.186) games this season.
  • Jimmy Glowenke had a 3-for-4 day with his third double on the season.  It was Glowenke’s first 3-hit game of the season, nudging Glowenke towards the Mendoza line for the first time this season.  He’s batting .196.
  • Marco Luciano picked up his fifth double on a 1-for-3 days with a HBP.  Luciano now has a batting line of .300/.374/.513 with five doubles and four home runs, and has eight walks to 20 strikeouts in 91 plate appearances this season.
  • Nick Swiney had the start, and struggled with 4 runs allowed in 3.2 innings, with three hits and three walks.  Swiney now has a 4.67 ERA through four starts, and has 19 strikeouts to ten walks.
  • Jake Wong ended up working longer than Swiney, allowing a run on two hits and two walks in 4.1 innings.  It was Wong’s longest outing of the year.  Wong has a 4.70 ERA with 15 strikeouts to seven walks in 15.1 innings.
  • The game ended in the middle of the 8th inning after it stopped due to rain.

Low-A: San Jose 7, Stockton 2


San Jose Notes:

  • Vaun Brown continues to excel in San Jose with a huge game.  He was 4-for-5 with his team-leading sixth home run as well as two more steals to give him nine on the season off of ten attempts.  It was the fourth straight game for Brown with a home run.  On the year, Brown is batting .317/.384/.535, with six home runs and four doubles.  His six home runs put him in a 5-way tie for second in the California League in home runs, two behind the leader (Robert Perez of Modesto with eight).
  • Aeverson Arteaga’s fourth home run of the season broke the game’s tie in the 7th inning, and Arteaga was 2-for-5 on the day.  On the year, Arteaga is batting .253/.317/.432 with five doubles and four home runs in 24 games this season.
  • Victor Bericoto was 2-for-5 with two doubles, giving him three doubles on the season.  Bericoto is just 15-for-79 (.19), but has a .340 on-base percentage with 17 walks to 30 strikeouts, and a .342 slugging percentage.
  • Alexander Suarez was 2-for-4 with his first double of the year, and his first steal of the year.  With the 2-hit game, Suarez is back to the Mendoza line (.200) for the first time since April 19th.  He has just the one double but three home runs in 18 games this season.
  • Will Bednar took the start, and had a solid game, allowing one run on three hits and two walks in 3.0 innings.  Bednar also hit a pair of batters, giving him nine hit batters on the year, notably with five in his first game of the year.  The nine HBP matches his entire college career total (23 games, 107.2 innings).
  • Seth Lonsway gave up a pair of runs in 3.2 innings, with two hits and four walks, with four strikeouts.  Lonsway has allowed ten earned runs  over his last three games (10.0 innings).
  • Mat Olsen struck out four in 2.1 scoreless innings, although he gave up a season-high-tying three hits.  Olsen has a 0.64 EA through six games, with 19 strikeouts to just three walks in 14.0 innings.
