AAA: Sacramento 2, Tacoma 1


Sacramento Notes:

  • Braden Bishop came in as a pinch runner in the late innings, but in his first at-bat in the 9th, he hit a tie-breaking home run to walk-off the game.  It was his 9th home run with Sacramento this season.
  • Bryce Johnson picked up his 14th double of the season.  For the month of August, he’s 15-for-37 (.405) with four doubles, a triple, and a home run.  He’s also stolen four bases in his last three games.
  • Conner Menez made his first start since June 12th, and it was his best outing since at least then.  It lowered his ERA from 7.20 to 6.43.
  • Camilo Doval had another scoreless outing, giving him 8 straight appearances without allowing a run.  His ERA dipped below 5.00 for the first time since June 6th with this game.

AA: Altoona 16, Richmond 5


Richmond Notes:

  • Diego Rincones continued his run, with his third home run in as many days.  That gives him nine home runs over 38 games in Double-A Richmond, after hitting five at High-A Eugene through 25 games there.
  • Andres Angulo hit his second home run in as many games (albeit four games apart).  He’s got four home runs in 153 at-bats at Double-A this season.  And with it, Richmond now has 110 home runs, a single-season record for the franchise.
  • Simon Whiteman now has hits in five straight games, picking up a pair of doubles to give him 16 in Double-A.
  • Michael Plassmeyer had a poor start, but set the tone for a miserable day for Richmond pitchers.  The 0.2 innings was his shortest start of the season by far.  Plassmeyer has given up 12 earned runs over his past three starts, over 13.0 innings.

High-A: Tri-City 3, Eugene 2

  • Brett Auerbach hit just his 7th double in Eugene as part of a 2-hit day.  Auerbach has a .333/.450/.788 batting line in August, with three doubles and four home runs.
  • Conner Nurse is having his best month of the season, with a 3.38 ERA in August after four starts.  His second lowest monthly ERA was a 4.56 ERA after five starts in June.

Low-A: San Jose 8, Lake Elsinore 5


San Jose Notes:

  • Harrison Freed had the big day, his second 4-hit day of the season, with his 7th home run.  Freed is batting .234/.347/.405 on the season, with those seven home runs and just two doubles.

ACL Giants Black Notes:

  • Diego Velasquez put together three hits, and his third double of the season.  He’s 12-for-28 (.429) over his last seven games.
