RF Jaylin Davis: 1-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 HR (2), 1 SO
DH Justin Bour: 1-3, 1 RBI, 1 BB

Sacramento struggled through a rough day, as Matt Frisbee had one bad inning, a really bad one.  Frisbee allowed two home runs, one at the start of the inning and one at the end.  Between that were two more hits and two more walks, all leading to six walks.  That set the River Cats too far back to catch up.

Other Notes:

  • Jaylin Davis picked up his second home run in as many games back, though he didn’t have as dominating a game otherwise as he had in his first game back.  
  • Joe McCarthy was named the Pacific Coast Triple-A West League Player of the Week for last week, and he continues to hit.  With his double today, he now has as many doubles as he has home runs, and is batting .324/.391/.598 on the season.
  • After today’s game, Frisbee has given up as many runs in Triple-A in two games as he gave up hits in five games at Double-A.  He’s also notably given up four home runs in 10.0 innings, after having given up two home runs in 29.0 innings in Double-A.
  • John Brebbia’s rehab continued, with his best game in several days, not giving up a run for the first time in three games.  He did walk his first batting in six games, an inning apiece.

RP Raffi Vizcaino: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 SO, 1 HR

The Flying Squirrels struggled through a rough loss.  The one big highlight in the game was Heliot Ramos, who hit a home run for the second time in as many days (though three games, thanks to a doubleheader).  Ramos is batting the coincidental line of .200/.300/.400 

Other Notes:

  • Sean Hjelle had a rough game, giving up four runs, but just two were earned after errors (including his own).    He’s now got 42 strikeouts to nine wlaks in 33.1 innings.
  • Matt Seelinger made his first appearance since June 5th, bouncing back from giving up a pair of runs in that game.  He went for his longest appearance of the season, at 2.1 innings.  Seelinger has only gone two innings or more in the month of June, after going only less than two innings in May.

RP Chris Wright: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 SO
RP R.J. Dabovich: 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 SO

The Emeralds won thanks to a two-out rally in the seventh inning.    Down 3-1, Eugene got two quick outs.  But Patrick Bailey drew a walk, and Will Wilson was hit by a pitch.  That put two runners on for Sean Roby, who hit his 4th home run of the season to give Eugene a 4-3 lead.

Other Notes:

  • Seth Corry still is doing a good job of not giving up hits, but free passes remain a problems.    Corry doubled his number of hit batters allowed this season, and now has wlaked 30 and hit six batters in 28.2 innings.
  • Sean Roby hit his fourth home run, putting him within one of his home run total of both 2019 and 2018.  The home run gets him back onto the Mendoza line for the season.
  • R.J. Dabovich hit his season high in strikeouts with five, giving him 28 strikeouts against six walks in 12.2 innings.
