AAA: Reno 13, Sacramento 4


Sacramento Notes:

  • Arquímedes Gamboa had a big day, hitting his second triple of the season and his third home run while going 2-for-3.  Gamboa has three multi-hit games over the last four he’s played, which has seen his batting average rise from .241 to .255.
  • Ka’ai Tom led the team with three hits, including his 9th double of the season.  Tom has been off to a very nice start in June, going 10-for-23 (.278) with three doubles and two home runs, and two walks to three strikeouts so far.
  • Isan Díaz notched his 8th home run of the season while going 1-for-4.  It’s Díaz’s second home run in as many games, and four in the last ten games.
  • Steven Duggar was 1-for-3 as his rehab continued into its fourth game.  He’s 2-for-11 to so far in his rehab.
  • Starter Tristan Beck had a rough game, giving up seven runs on nine hits and two walks in 4.0 innings, with just three strikeouts.  Beck now has a 9.20 ERA over seven appearances, six starts, in Sacramento, and is giving up hits to a .338 batting average allowed.
  • Mauricio Llovera went two scoreless innings, allowing a pair of hits but also getting a pair of strikeouts.  It means Llovera remains unscored upon while in Triple-A, with 22 strikeouts to just three walks in 16.0 innings.

AA: Richmond 6, Erie 4


Richmond Notes:

  • Michael Gigliotti was 1-for-3 with his third home run and a pair of walks.  Gigliotti is now one home run away from matching his previous season-high in home runs of four, which he has reached twice: in 2021 over 27 games, and in 2017 over 64 games.
  • Diego Rincones was 2-for-4 with two doubles, and he now has four doubles on the year. It’s been a difficult season so far for Rincones, who went 9-for-71 (.127) in May without any extra-base hits.  The doubles were his first extra-base hits since April 16th.
  • Brett Auerbach also went 2-for-4, with his fourth double.  It was Auerbach’s second straight game with multiple hits, which has boosted his batting average from .204 to .221.
  • Kai-Wei Teng only went 2.2 innings in the start, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks, but he did strike out five.  It was Teng’s shortest start of the season, less than his previous low of 3.2 innings.
  • Trenton Toplikar got the lion’s share of innings, going 3.1 scoreless innings with a hit and walk allowed, with three strikeouts.  It was Toplikar’s first scoreless outing in his last three games, over which he had allowed three earned runs in 2.1 innings.
  • R.J. Dabovich picked up the save with 1.1 scoreless innings, striking out three of the five batters he faced.  While Dabovich has a 3.05 ERA, he now has 29 strikeouts to just five walks in 20.2 innings.

High-A: Eugene 7, Spokane 1


Eugene Notes:

  • Carter Aldrete picked up his ninth home run of the year, while going 2-for-4.  It’s Aldrete’s fifth home run in his last 12 games.  This gives Aldrete the team lead in home runs with nine, passing Marco Luciano.
  • Jairo Pomares went 1-for-4 with his sixth home run of the year.  It was Pomares’ first home run since he hit a pair on May 22nd, a span of 13 games.
  • Ghordy Santos went 2-for-5 with his 9th double of the season.  While Santos has started June with playing five games, and going just 4-for-23 (.174), he does have two doubles and a home run in those four hits.
  • Randy Rodriguez had the start, and though he gave up a run in 5.0 innings, he only allowed one hit and one walk while striking out four.  It’s the second time the converted reliever has reached 5.0 innings this season.
  • Marco Luciano did not play, which is now three games in which he has not played.  No reason has been given.

Low-A: San Jose 7, Lake Elsinore 0


San Jose Notes:

  • Starter Will Bednar had his best start of the season, going 5.0 scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and one walk with six strikeouts.  The 5.0 innings matched a season high, and the six strikeouts fell one short of his season-high in that stat.
  • Aeverson Arteaga had San Jose’s only extra-base hit in this blowout win, picking up his 11th double.  Arteaga now has a mini 5-game hitting streak, and hits in 12 of his last 13 games.
  • Riley Mahan continues to hit well, going 2-for-3 and also picking up a pair of steals.  The 26-year old is batting .306/.393/.449 through 12 games, with two doubles, a triple, and a home run, and now has four steals in as many attempts.
  • Vaun Brown didn’t get a hit, but got two walks while going 0-for-3, and used them to pick up a pair of steals, giving him 23 on the season, but he also got caught for just the second time.  Brown now has 23 walks to 53 strikeouts in 48 games.
  • Seth Lonsway worked three scoreless innings in relief, allowing a hit and a walk with three strikeouts.  It was the first time Lonsway hadn’t allowed a run in an appearance since April 21st, a span of eight appearances.

  • Gustavo Cardozo was the other player with two hits, though he did it coming into the game as a pinch-runner.  He went 2-for-4 today, giving him 2-for-6 overall this season.
  • Mikell Manzano had a solid first start at the level, giving up two runs in 4.0 innings, on five hits and two walks, with six strikeouts.  Manzano had 70 strikeouts to five walks in 48.1 innings in the DSL last season.
