Down on the Farm: 7/13/2013

AAA  Fresno Grizzlies defeated the Sacramento River Cats 6-4:

Gary Brown(CF)- 1 for 4, 3B.  BA= .244.
Brett Pill(1B)- 1 for 4, HR(15).  BA= .343.
Yusmeiro Petit(RHP)- 7 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K's.  ERA= 5.69.
Heath Hembree(RHP)- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, Save(19).  ERA= 4.42.

Hembree now has 8 consecutive scoreless innings in 8 appearances in which he has recorded 5 Saves.  In that stretch, he has 12 K's against just 2 BB's.

AA  Bowie Baysox blasted the Richmond Flying Squirrels 13-0:

Edwin Escobar(LHP)- 4 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 5 K's.  ERA= 9.00.

The K's and BB's look good in Escobar's first AA start.  The Squirrels managed just 1 hit in this one by Minicozzi, who is not really a prospect.

High A  Lake Elsinore Storm scored 5 runs in the bottom of the 8'th inning for a come-from-behind win over the San Jose Giants:

Brock Bond(3B)- 2 for 3, 2B, HBP.  BA= .254.
Ricky Oropesa(1B)- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .392.
Devin Harris(RF)- 2 for 4, 2B, SB(1).  BA= .255.
Bobby Haney(2B)- 2 for 4.  BA= .246.
Kelvin Marte(LHP)- 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 3.34.

Low A  Augusta Greenjackets stung the Charleston River Dogs 4-1:

Mitch Delfino(3B)- 2 for 4.  BA= .236.
Joey Rapp(1B)- 2 for 4.  BA= .226.
Matt Lujan(LHP)- 7 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 3.19.

Short Season  Salem-Keizer Volcanoes shutout the Spokane Indians 6-0:

Jeremy Sy(SS)- 2 for 3, HR(3), BB, SB(7).  BA= .284.
Ty Ross(C)- 2 for 3, 2B.  BA= .750.
Joe Kurrasch(LHP)- 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 3.81.
Jake Shadle(RHP)- 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 1.56.
Eduardo Encinosa(RHP)- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 3.60.

Rookie AZL  Giants outslugged the Dodgers 15-11:

Christian Arroyo(DH)- 1 for 5.  BA= .245.
Ryder Jones(3B)- 3 for 5.  BA= .379.
Ryan Cavan(2B)- 2 for 5, 2 2B.  BA= .542.
Francisco Peguero(LF)- 3 for 5, 3B, HR(1).  BA= .385.
Craig Massoni(1B)- 2 for 5.  BA= .342.
Matt Pare(C)- 2 for 5, HR(1).  BA= .429.
Cristian Paulino(CF)- 2 for 5, 2B.  BA= .273.
Tyler Rogers(RHP)- 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K's.  ERA= 0.00.

Nice game for padding the stat lines.  I love that the baby Giants are winning and everything, but it's about time for Cavan and Pegs to move on from their rehab assignments?

DSL  Giants were idle.


  1. Ryder Jones is off to a very nice start. Next year's S-K team could have some big time offensive talent, depending on who's placed where. Cabrera, Javier, Arroyo, Ryder Jones, Ross, Arenado, Reilly... with guys like Hollick, Bednar, Horan, McCall and Ragira moving up to Augusta. Definitely some offensive names to watch!

    1. The Giants have all of a sudden accumulated a large contingent of very young position talent, something I do not recall them doing since way back in the 60's. Indeed, it will be interesting to see how they develop.

    2. That's very true DrB, they haven't had any great mass of position talent in the 40-plus years I've been following them (I didn't follow them in 60's as you did), we would have pockets here and there, but nothing to compare with what we have today, much like we did not have a great mass of pitching talent until recent years with Cain, Sanchez, Lincecum, Bumgarner, Wilson, Romo, plus Crick, Blackburn, Mejia, Escobar, Stratton, Agosta, and others.

      And it has been amazingly getting better every year, in spite of the winning and getting poorer first round picks, they have been hitting on all cylinders, especially once we got Barr on our team, hopefully the Giants can reward him with a big contract and a nice enough title that he won't be lured to another team to be GM there.
