Well, this was a day of blowouts, as three of the top Giants farm teams got blown out, and one won by blow out.  And in this day, Kyle Harrison took a beating in his worst game of the year.

AAA: Round Rock 11, Sacramento 5


Sacramento Notes:

  • Kyle Harrison just got pounded in this game, giving up seven runs in just 2.1 innings, allowing three home runs.  Sacramento only got their offense going late, in the 6th inning.  The inning was highlighted by Ford Proctor’s 3-run home run, which followed a bases-loaded Armando Alvarez single that knocked in two.  But the five runs were already matched by Round Rock in the first inning alone.
  • Starting pitcher Kyle Harrison had his worst game of the season, giving up seven runs in 2.1 innings, on seven hits, two walks, and one HBP.  He gave up three home runs in this game alone, only his second game allowing multiple home runs.  This game lifted Harrison’s ERA from 3.42 to 4.53, and his batting average allowed jumped from .168 to .194.
  • First baseman Ford Proctor was 1-for-3 with a walk and his fifth home run of the season.  It’s Proctor’s first home run since he hit three over two games from June 10-11.  Proctor’s batting line sits at .236/.370/.330 with three doubles and five home runs, and 41 walks to 48 strikeouts.
  • Third baseman Armando Alvarez went 1-for-4 with a 2-run single and a strikeout.  After ten games in Sacramento, Alvarez is 9-for-31 (.290) with two doubles, one triple, and two home runs, with seven walks to seven strikeouts.
  • Joey Bart is still struggling, as he went 0-for-2, but he did collect two walks.  He’s hitless in his last four games, but his walks are his first since coming back to Sacramento in 12 games.
  • The Giants made a trade, in the wake of the Mitch Haniger injury.  They traded cash for Phillies outfielder Dalton Guthrie, who was DFA’d on June 19th.  Guthrie hit .280/.385/.476 in 22 games at Triple-A, but also hit just .167/.286/.208 in 23 games in the big leagues.

AA: Harrisburg 11, Richmond 3


Richmond Notes:

  • Another blowout loss from Richmond.  Both teams got a pair of runs in the 1st inning, but Harrisburg took the lead in the 2nd inning with a run, and then broke out for seven runs to easily win this game.
  • Catcher Brandon Martorano went 1-for-4 with a home run, his third of the season.  In 20 games, Martorano has three doubles and three home runs, with a batting line of .169/.295/.354.
  • Right field Vaun Brown went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts and a HBP, with a stolen base.  Brown has struggled lately, and is hitting just .148 (8-for-54) in the month of June.  He has 11 stolen bases total in 31 games.
  • Starting pitcher Ryan Murphy gave up three runs, two earned, on three hits and two walks in 2.2 innings, striking out four.  Murphy’s ERA sits at 5.21 on the season, and he has a .290 batting average allowed, the lowest it’s been since the first week of the season.
  • Reliever Raymond Burgos struck out two in his inning of work.  Over 19 games, he has a 2.92 ERA, with 24 strikeouts to 15 walks in 24.2 innings.

High-A: Vancouver 13, Eugene 2


Eugene Notes:

  • Another bad blowout.  Vancouver took the lead in the top of the 1st with three runs, and never looked back.  Eugene got two runs in the bottom of the 1st with a Victor Bericoto home run, but that would be all.
  • Designated Hitter Victor Bericoto had the big hit, with a 2-run home run on a 1-for-4 day.  Bericoto leads the system with 14 home runs, and now has a batting line .303/.357/.543 with 12 doubles, a triple, and 14 home runs.
  • Shortstop Aeverson Arteaga was 1-for-2 with a walk.  Through 61 games, Arteaga has a .218/.305/.381 batting line with 27 walks to 67 strikeouts.
  • Ghordy Santos kept his hitting streak going, going 1-for-3.  That gives Santos a 10-game hitting streak, going 15-for-36 (.417) over that span, and his overall batting average is up to .241 with a .359 batting average.
  • It was a rough game for Hayden Birdsong in his second game at Eugene, as he gave up eight runs in 3.0 innings, allowing six hits, two walks, and two HBP while striking out just three.  Birdsong had a 2.16 ERA in 12 games at Low-A, but has a 10.29 ERA after two games in High-A.  

Low-A: San Jose 16, Stockton 7


San Jose Notes:

  • Finally, a blowout that is going the right way!  San Jose just rolled all over the Ports, with every player in the San Jose lineup picking up at least one hit, with a home run and seven doubles, and seven steals in the offensive explosion.
  • The one performance that stood out was the rehabbing ross Stripling, who took the start and gave up two runs on four hits in 4.0 innings, with 10 strikeouts.  It’s Stripling’s first rehab start in San Jose, although he had a 4.50 ERA in two rehab starts in Arizona.
  • Designated Anthony Rodriguez was 2-for-5 with a walk, and his first home run, plus his first stolen base.  Rodriguez has played just 14 games in San Jose this season after a late start, and goes 14-for-56 (.250) with four doubles, one triple, and one home run, and now has one steal in two attempts.  Rodriguez had six home runs in 52 games at Arizona in 2022.
  • Catcher Onil Perez went 2-for-5 with two doubles, and his 11th stolen base.  In 40 games so far, Perez has nine doubles, three triples, and one home run, with a batting line of .315/.380/.424, and has 11 stolen bases without having been caught once.
  • Making a surprise appearance in San Jose was Isan Díaz, who was last seen in Sacramento four days ago.  It’s unclear why Díaz was moved down, as he’d gotten into just six games in Sacramento, three in the last week, and was hitting well (5-for-14 over those three).  He was 2-for-5 with a double and a walk in his first game at San Jose.  Diaz did have two errors, though.
  • Alexander Suarez led the team in hits, going 3-for-5, and picked up his eighth steal.  It’s Suarez’s first game with multiple hits since June 1st.  He’s batting just .229 on the month, but has a .253/.333/.367 overall batting line.

ACL: ACL Giants Black 2, ACL Giants Orange 1 (7 Innings)


ACL Giants Black Notes:

  • Right fielder Eliam Sandoval went 2-for-2 with a walk and a home run, the only one of the game.  It was Sandoval’s first home run of the season in 12 games.  In 26 games in the DSL in 2022, he had five home runs.  Sandoval had a batting line of .278/.386/.444.
  • Rehabbing Donovan Walton was 1-for-3 with a HBP on the day.  Nine games into his rehab, Walton is batting .346/.469/.462 with three doubles, and four walks to five strikeouts.
  • Starting pitcher Wilkelma Castillo gave up just one run in 5.0 innings, on four hits, no walks, and a HBP, while striking out six.  In five appearances since going back down to Arizona, Castillo has a 1.00 ERA, and had 24 strikeouts to three walks in 18.0 innings.

ACL Giants Orange Notes:

  • First baseman Derwin Laya picked up his first double of the season, on a 1-for-3 day.  In his 13 games, Laya now has a double and a home run, with a .256/.333/.349 batting line.
  • Left fielder Samuel Reyes went 1-for-2 with his first double of the season, and an error, his third.  Reyes has a batting line of .355/.474/.387, with the double being his only extra-base hit so far.
  • Garrett Frechette was 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.  After 11 games in the ACL, his batting line sits at .250/.400/.321, with just two doubles for extra bases.
  • Rehabbing Will Bednar had the start, going 3.0 innings, allowing one run on two hits a walk, and one HBP, while striking out five.  With four games under his belt, Bednar has a 4.22 ERA in the ACL, with 15 strikeouts to seven walks in 10.2 innings.
  • In relief, Alix Hernandez went 4.0 innings, allowing one run on three hits and one walk, while also striking out five.  In the 18-year old’s first pro season, he has a 6.39 ERA with 18 strikeouts to seven walks in 12.2 innings.

DSL: DSL Giants Black 6, DSL Cubs Red 3

  • 1st baseman Eduardo Montero was 2-for-3 with a double.  He’s gotten into just five games, going 6-for-17 (.353) with three doubles so far this season.
