AA: Doubleheader

Game 1: Bowie 10, Richmond 9 (7 Innings)


Game 2: Richmond 10, Bowie 1


Richmond Notes:

  • Sandro Fabian had a big day across the doubleheader, with two home runs (giving him 12 on the season) and his first triple.  Fabian now has a batting line of .272/.307/.490 on the season, and has just 38 strikeouts to nine walks in 206 games.
  • Vince Fernandez had his eighth double and his first triple across the two games, helping to raise him in a cold month.  He’s just 3-for-29 (.103) in August so far.
  • David Villar was 4-for-7 across the two games, with a pair of doubles giving him 19 on the season.
  • Akeel Morris had a strong start in game 2, his second straight strong 6-inning start.  He allowed just two hits for the second time in a row.
  • Matt Frisbee gave up his first game with a ton of hits allowed in Double-A, allowing 10 hits (it’s the third time he’s allowed this many, the first two were in Sacramento).  His Double-A batting average allowed jumped from .136 to .188.
  • Ronnie Williams was part of an epic final inning collapse that saw Richmond allow five runs.  Williams had gone 2.2 innings of hitless ball before entering the 7th, in which he gave up two singles and then a home run without allowing a hit.  It was the first earned runs Williams allowed since July 18th.
  • Patrick Ruotolo then came in, allowed a single, and then got his only out on a bunt.  He walked the next batter, and allowed a double that walked off the game, letting both runners score.  Ruotolo has now allowed four earned runs in August, the first month he’s allowed more than run since allowing four in May.

High-A: Eugene 11, Hillsboro 6


Eugene Notes:

  • Rob Emery has been playing sporadically, but is getting hits when he does.  He picked up his second 4-hit game in his last four played (dating back to July 29th!), and has multiple hits in all four of those games.  His home run is just his second in 58 at-bats in Eugene, and 4th of the season overall.
  • Tyler Fitzgerald hit his 16th home run of the season, and has a string of four straight games with an extra-base hit.  He has a .288/.370/.538 batting line on the season with 26 doubles, two triples, and 16 home runs, but also with 109 strikeouts to 32 walks.
  • Ryan Murphy made his third start at High-A, and gave up his first earned runs, but has remained otherwise dominating.  In 17.1 innings at the level, Murphy has 25 strikeouts to four walks.
  • Sean Roby had three hits with a double, his third 3-hit game of the month, in which he’s batting .347 (17-for-49).
  • Armani Smith’s 4-hit day has capped off a recent run that has raised his High-A batting average up to .300.  He’s had four multi-hit games in his last five, which pushed up his batting average by 25 points, and he has a double and a home run in that span.

Low-A: Modesto 5, San Jose 4


San Jose Notes:

  • Jairo Pomares just continues to hit, putting up his second 3-hit game, and hitting his 14th home run of the season.  Pomares has an amazing .371/.429/.696 batting line, and the 21-year old really shouldn’t be in San Jose much longer.
  • Luis Matos added his 25th double of the season to his total, in his 80th game.  That matches his 2019 total, where he hit 25 doubles in 60 games across the DSL and the AZL.
  • Jimmy Glowenke had a double, his 21st, but also added three walks to his total.  He’s batting just .190 (8-for-42) in August, but has a .320 OBP with five walks drawn over his last three games.  He’s got 71 strikeouts to 33 walks in 302 plate appearances this season.
  • Wil Jensen had a solid start, though he gave up two home runs in a game for just the third time this season.  He’s allowed 11 home runs in 85.2 innings this season, with 95 strikeouts to 19 walks in 85.2 innings.

Game 1: ACL Giants Orange 4, ACL Giants Black 1 (6 Innings)


ACL Giants Black Notes:

  • Hunter Bishop’s rehab hit a new milestone with his first extra-base hit, a double.  He’s still 3-for-18 across seven rehab games this month.
  • Alexander Suarez homered for the second time in August, giving him two home runs in the month.  He’s got a batting line of .327/.382/.531.  Notably, after he stole 10 bases in 13 attempts in June and July, he has yet to attempt a steal in August.
  • Tristan Beck made his first rehab appearance, with three hits and a run giving up in one inning.  Beck has been off the field since a May 21st start in Richmond.  He had a 5.89 ERA over four starts this season before he went down.

ACL Giants Orange Notes:

  • Edison Mora had a strong game for the Orange team, going 3-for-3 and adding in two steals.  With the ACL, Mora has eight steal in as many attempts.
  • Aeverson Arteaga was 1-for-3, breaking a streak of two hitless games.  He’s struck out twice in each of the last two games, giving him 36 in 118 at-bats, with 13 walks.
  • Nick Morreale made his 6th start in the ACL, going 2.2 innings, the longest outing he’s had, and striking out five.  Across six starts, he’s struck out 14 and walked three in 9.1 innings.

  • Eliam Sandoval had his second game with two doubles in the last three, iving him a total of five on the season.  He also drew his first walk.  In 45 at-bats, he has 13 strikeouts and the one walk.
  • Cristofer Valenzuela bounced back from his last start nine days ago, in which he did not get an out, though he still struggled.  He allowed three hits, two walks, and hit a batter in 3.0 innings.
