AAA: Reno 8, Sacramento 4


Sacramento Notes:

  • Austin Dean led the Cats in hitting, going 2-for-4 with his 17th home run of the season.    Dean is now just one home run short of his minor league single-season high, which he had in 2019 (that year, he also had six in the big leagues with Miami).
  • Jason Krizan hit his 29th double while going 1-for-3 with a walk.  Krizan has 29 doubles, two triples, and 14 home runs in 90 games this season in Sacramento, after having 26 doubles, a triple, and 16 home runs in 110 games in 2021.
  • Yermin Mercedes had his fourth double in Sacramento, going 1-for-4.  Mercedes now has as many games in the minors for the Giants as in the bigs (31).  He’s hitting .256/.326/.419 with Sacramento, while hitting .233/.325/.342 in SF.
  • The other River Cats extra base hit was by Jhonny Pereda, who had his 10th double while going 1-for-4.  Pereda has only plaed in 61 games with Sacramento this season, and hit .269/.365/.381 with ten doubles and four home runs for the River Cats.
  • Trevor Hildenberger had the “start”, not allowing a baserunner in a scoreless inning, striking out one in his Sacramento debut.  Hildenberger has missed most of the year, and has made one appearance each in Arizona, San Jose, and now Sacramento.  He had a 4.91 ERA in 22 games, mostly in relief and mostly in the Giants organization, in 2021.
  • R.J. Dabovich gave up a run in relief, allowing it on a hit and a walk while striking out two.  Dabovich now has a 3.80 ERA in 20 games at Triple-A, with 26 strikeouts to 19 walks in 21.1 innings.

AA: Erie 5, Richmond 1


Richmond Notes:

  • Carter Aldrete led a weak offensive day for Richmond, going 1-for-3 with his 6th Double-A home run.  That gives Aldrete 21 total home runs, with 15 in 74 games at Eugene, and six in 41 games at Richmond.
  • Tyler Fitzgerald was 1-for-4 with his third triple of the season.  Fitzgerald has 20 doubles, three triples, and 21 home runs across 125 games in a healthy season, batting .229/.310/.424.
  • Keaton Winn had the start, allowing three runs on seven hits and no walks with 5.0 innings, striking out three.  Winn will finish in Richmond with a 4.15 ERA over six starts in Richmond, with 24 strikeouts to six walks in 30.1 innings.  Overall this year, he has a 4.08 ERA with 125 strikeouts to 32 walks in 108.0 innings across three levels from Low-A to Double-A.
  • Blake Rivera made his return to action by striking out two and walking one in a scoreless inning.  Rivera hadn’t been seen since July 30th.  After a rough start to the season, and his long injury stint, Rivera will finish with a 2.70 ERA in 28 games at Richmond, with 48 strikeouts to 23 walks in 46.2 innings.
