  • Tyler Fitzgerald went 2-for-2 with a walk, hitting his 19th home run and 13th double of the season, and stealing his 13th base.  Must have been a lucky day.  Fitzgerald is batting .327/.368/.424 with three doubles and three home runs so far in the month of August.

High-A: Hillsboro 5, Eugene 3

  • Guess who’s back?  Marco Luciano came into the game late, in a way he probably didn’t expect, replacing Glowenke in the field after Glowenke was ejected in the 6th inning.  Luciano played the final three innings and went 0-for-1 in his return.
  • Starter Jake Wong gave up just one run on three hits, two walks, and a HBP in 5.0 innings, with three strikeouts.  Over his last two starts (9.0 innings), Wong has allowed just one run on four hits and four walks with the HBP, while striking out seven.  He’s lowered his ERA from 5.45 to 4.96 with those two games.

Low-A: Inland Empire 6, San Jose 4


San Jose Notes:

  • Yorlis Rodriguez led the San Jose offense by going 3-for-4 with his 13th home run, and two doubles to give him 18 on the season.  Rodriguez is 16-for-57 (.281) in August, with five doubles and three home runs, but since he hasn’t walked at all this month, his OBP for the month is lower (.276).
  • Alexander Suarez had his most fun home run of the season on a 1-for-4 day, hitting a ball that hit high off the outfield wall and bounced away from the fielders, allowing Suarez to round the bases for an inside-the-park home run.  Suarez now has 11 home runs and 10 doubles across 74 games on the season.
  • Jared Dupere is 1-for-4 with his ninth home run in San Jose in his 26th game.  Dupere has a batting line of .287/.368/.604 with three doubles, one triple, and nine home runs in San Jose.
