AAA: Oklahoma City 12, Sacramento 3
- Isan Díaz had one of the better offensive days for the Cats, going 1-for-2 with his 10th double and two walks. Through 61 games, Díaz now has 28 walks to 66 strikeouts, though the walks are the first he’s had since collecting one on July 13th. He’s struck out ten times since that game.
- Austin Dean also had a double while going 2-for-4. Dean now has nine doubles on the season, and over his last six games, has gone 9-for-21 with two doubles, three walks, and three strikeouts.
- Sean Hjelle had a bit of a tough start, giving up three runs in 4.0 innings, on six hits, four walks, and a HBP, with four strikeouts. In three starts since a rough MLB callup, Hjelle has allowed 12 runs in 12.2 innings, with 21 hits allow to ten walks, and just eight strikeouts.
- Two new relievers made their Giants debuts.Kyle Tyler allowed a run in 1.0 innings, on one hit, a home run, while striking out two. Tyler opted for free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A by the Padres on July 6th. Tyler had two scoreless outings in the bigs, allowing just two hits and a walk in 4.0 innings, with two K’s. In Triple-A El Paso, he had a 4.98 ERA in 15 starts, struggling with control. He had 19 walks to 27 strikeouts in 21.2 innings, with 12 runs allowed on just 11 hits.
- Reliever Tobias Myers gave up three runs in 1,0 innings, on three walks and one hit, but also with three strikeouts. Myers had been DFA’d by the Guardians on July 2nd, and the Giants traded cash considerations for him. In 14 games at Triple-A Columbus, all as starts, he had a 6.00 ERA with 33 walks to 40 strikeouts in 60.0 innings.
- That K:BB ratio does not match his career track: in 2021, he’d had a combined 146 strikeouts to 28 walks in 117.2 innings. This makes Myers an interesting rebound candidate.
