ACL Giants Black Notes:
- First baseman Guillermo Williamson had the big hit for the Black team, going 1-for-3 with a 3-run home run, his third of the season. Williamson is 7-for-20 (.350) with a double and three home runs in six games this season.
- Rehabbing DH Donovan Walton was 1-for-3 with a double. Walton is 4-for-9 in three rehab games, with two doubles, a walk, and one strikeout.
- Making his season debut on rehab was third baseman Sean Roby. Roby was 0-for-2 with a strikeout. Roby played just three innings in his first game. In 2022, Roby had 25 home runs in 89 games, batting .219/.286/.481 at Double-A Richmond.
- Shortstop Ryan Reckley was 1-for-3. That gives him a 4-for-22 (.182) line after six games, with four walks to ten strikeouts.
- Starting pitcher Ubert Mejia gave up eight hits in 4.2 innings, along with three walks, but it resulted in just one run, and also just one strikeout. After two starts, Mejias has a 1.96 ERA, but has allowed 14 hits and four walks with just two strikeouts.
ACL Giants Orange Notes:
- Jean Carlos Sio played the second half of the game at third base, going 2-for-2 with a triple, his first of the season. Sio is 6-for-20 (.300) with a double and a triple, and three walks to four strikeouts.
- Sio played half the game because of Justin Bench exiting the game in the 3rd after going 1-for-2. At the end of the 3rd inning, Bench was involved in a tag play at third, and he was removed immediately after, but it’s not clear if it was an injury. Bench only had one at-bat in his first game this season, playing as a DH, and this was his second.
