Low-A: San Jose 6, Fresno 5
San Jose Notes:
- Jimmy Glowenke has six home runs on the season, but none likely made as big an impact as his 9th inning, game-tying grand slam on Friday. The 4 RBI in one swing are the most he’s had in a single game all season.

- Carter Williams has used up his monthly quota for triples, as he’s had one in each month he’s played this season. He’s got a long way to go before he can hit another one.
- Carson Ragsdale’s strikeout touch returned, as he struck out more than innings pitched for the first time in three starts, though he also gave up his first walk in that span, and hit a batter for the first time since June 9th.
