Kelvin Marte(LHP)- 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 5 K's.  ERA= 3.79.
George Kontos(RHP)- 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 2.12.

AA  Richmond Flying Squirrels were idle.

High A  San Jose Giants were idle.

Low A  Augusta Greenjackets edged the West Virginia Power 2-1:

Chris Lofton(RF)- 2 for 3, BB, 2 SB(17).  BA= .245.
Cristian Paulino(LF)- 1 for 3, HR(3), SB(20).  BA= .251.

Jake Smith(RHP)- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K's, Save(5).  ERA= 2.57.

Short Season  Hillsboro Hops topped the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 13-7:

Austin Slater(CF)- 2 for 4, SB(3).  BA= .500.
Christian Arroyo(SS)- 2 for 5, 2B, HR(4).  BA= .323.
Aramis Garcia(Catcher)- 1 for 3, HR1).  BA= .333.
Hunter Cole(3B)- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .286.
Johneshwy Fargas(LF)- 1 for 3, BB, SB(11).  BA= .248.
Keury Mella(RHP)- 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 0.00.

Arroyo is tearing up the NWL hitting .355 for the month of August and .365 over the last 30 days.  Garcia is hitting much better in the NWL than he did in Arizona.  Mella is slowly ramping up coming off an injury.

Rookie AZL  Giants were idle.

DSL  Giants defeated the Cardinals 3-2:

Mecky Coronado(DH, 17 yo)- 2 for 3, 2 BB.  BA= .297.
Victor Concepcion(RHP, 17 yo)- 6 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 7 K's.  ERA= 3.45.
Jose Morel(RHP, 20 yo)- 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K's, Save(4).  ERA= 1.60.

Coronado seems to have the hit tool down.  Not sure he can do anything else.  Nice bounceback by Concepcion after his last disaster start.  Morel is old for the DSL but has 51 K against just 14 BB in 45 IP.  Maybe he gets brought to the states next year?

SJ Giants are going to be in Rancho Cucamonga this week.  Unfortunately, I am unable to attend any of the games due to an illness in the family.

    1. Depression is a real SOB. It is a physical disease caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain which can kill people just like cancer or diabetes or Asthma or any other disease.

      Your health is precious. When you lose it, you lose everything, doesn't matter how rich or successful you are, or where you live.

      I've driven through Tiburon and Belvedere. I have to admit I thought to myself, "if only….". There is no substitute for good health!
