AAA: Reno 10, Sacramento 9


Sacramento Notes:

  • Sacramento lost in a devastating manner, giving up five runs in the 9th to lose the lead.  The majority of the damage came against R.J. Dabovich, who gave up a walk and a single while getting two outs, before a 2-run double, and a walk.  Pat Ruotolo came in, and got a ground ball which turned into a costly error by David Villar, before another double put Reno in front.
  • Dabovich finished the game with four runs, two earned, on two hits and two walks in 0.2 innings.  He has yet to get a strikeout in Triple-A in two games (1.2 innings).
  • Despite the error, David Villar had a big offensive game by going 3-for-5 with his 21st home run and 14th double.  With that, Villar has set a new season-high in home runs already in early July though 65 games, breaking the total of 20 he had in 106 games at Richmond.
  • Joey Bart hit a monster home run, his first in his return to Sacramento, while going 2-for-5 with no strikeouts.  Bart now is 8-for-28 (.286) with the home run in seven games, with two walks to six strikeouts.
  • Yermin Mercedes picked up his second Sacramento home run, going 3-for-4.  In 6 games at Sacramento, Mercedes is 8-for-23 (.348) with two home runs, and three walks to five strikeouts.
  • Almost lost in the shuffle was Isan Díaz hitting his 15th home run on a 1-for-5 day.  Díaz had eight home runs in 22 games in June, and it took him just two games to get his first in July.
  • Taylor Williams made his second start of the season, going 2.0 scoreless with a hit allowed and a strikeout.  Williams hasn’t allowed any runs in his two starts (4.0 innings) while having a 5.97 ERA in 21 relief appearances.
