Low-A: Fresno 12, San Jose 3
San Jose Notes:
- This game was over pretty early, as San Jose had given up three runs before getting any outs and gave up six runs total in the first inning mostly on the back of Nick Sinacola. San Jose was down 8-0 by the time they came up to bat in the 3rd, when they did score three runs, but they didn’t put up a real offensive threat the rest of the way.
- Yorlis Rodriguez had the team’s biggest hit, hitting a home run to left to kick off the 3rd inning rally. Rodriguez had 16 home runs in the regular season, along with 20 doubles and two triples in 105 games.
- Adrian Sugastey was the only Giant with multiple hits, going 2-for-4. With San Jose, Sugastey hit .240 in 75 games, with 11 doubles, one triple, and five home runs in the regular season.
- Logan Wyatt was 1-for-3 with a walk in his first playoff game with San Jose. After spending much of last season in High-A, Wyatt only began this season in Arizona for 18 games before playing 11 in San Jose, batting .191/.264/.255.
- It just wasn’t good for Sinacola, who went 0.1 innings and allowed six runs on six hits and one walk, getting that only out on a strikeout. It was a disappointment as he had a great season, with a 3.86 ERA and had 116 strikeouts to 39 walks in 102.2 innings.
