High-A: Eugene 5, Vancouver 1


Eugene Notes:

  • The home run was the way for Eugene in this game.  Vancouver jumped out to a lead in the top of the first, scoring a single run,  But Eugene answered in the 2nd with a 2-run Ghordy Santos home run.  That would have been enough to win the game, but they got three more on a 3-run Aeverson Arteaga home run in the 6th to get plenty of insurance.
  • Ghordy Santos was 1-for-3 with a walk and his 5th home run, extending his hitting streak to nine games.  He’s now 14-for-33 (.424) with four doubles, two triples, and two home runs in that span.  Overall, the batting line grows to .239/.360/.442, with an OPS that has grown from .631 to 802 over the streak.
  • Aeverson Arteaga had the other home run, going 1-for-3.  That’s just Arteaga’s 7th home run of the season, and first since June 3rd.  He’s halfway to his total from San Jose in 2022.  He’s hit seven in 60 games this season, and had 14 in 122 games last season.  His batting line sits at .215/.301/.380.
  • The only Emerald with multiple hits was Adrian Sugastey, who was 2-for-4 with a pair of singles.  That’s five straight games with multiple hits for Sugastey.  Over the five games, he’s 12-for-23 (.522) with two doubles, and no walks to three strikeouts.  He’s raised his batting average from .258 to .291 over that span.
  • Second baseman Edison Mora also kept his hitting streak alive, with a 1-for-3 day.  That gets him to a 7-game streak, in which he’s 10-for-27 (.370) with five doubles and two home runs.  Overall, he’s still batting just .217/.286/.446 on the year.
  • Starter Eric Silva had a good game, giving up just one run in 4.0 innings, on two hits, two walks, and one HBP with one strikeout.  It’s Silva’s first game allowing just one run since May 20th, and dipped his ERA down from 4.95 to 4.72.  Silva has 46 strikeouts to 28 walks in 47.2 innings.
  • Reliever Joe Kemlage got the win in relief, striking out two without allowing a baserunner.  That dips Kemlage’s ERA back under five at 4.98 after 19 games, with 37 strikeouts to 14 walks in 34.1 innings.
  • Will Kempner also went an inning, allowing just one hit with two strikeouts.  In three games at High-A, Kempner has allowing two runs, one earned, on four hits and two walks in 3.0 innings, with five strikeouts.

Low-A: Stockton 4, San Jose 1


San Jose Notes:

  • San Jose jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a Matt Higgins home run, but it was all Stockton after that point.  Stockton scored three runs in the second inning, and that would be enough, though they added another in the 7th inning for this win.
  • Left fielder Matt Higgins went 1-for-4 with his eighth home run of the season.  After 52 games, Higgins has eight home runs, 14 doubles, and one triple, with a .293/.387/.486 batting line.

  • Starting pitcher Manuel Mercedes had a bit of a rough game, giving up three runs on four hits and five walks in 4.0 innings, with four strikeouts.  That’s three straight games for Mercedes going 4.0 innings and allowing three runs.  Over 52.0 innings this season, Mercedes now has 34 strikeouts to 21 walks in 52.0 innings.
  • Reliever Dylan Cumming struck out two in a single inning, allowing just one hit.  That’s 18 games for him, with a 2.94 ERA, and he has 32 strikeouts to 14 walks in 33.2 innings.
