Giants Winter Ball Roundup: 11/8/2011

Crawford's streak survives -- barely. Giants relievers continue to dominate the AFL. Monell has a huge night in Puerto Rico.

Games played Monday, November 7.

ARIZONA FALL LEAGUE - Scottsdale 4, Salt River 9

Brandon Crawford -- who may very well be playing himself into the everyday shortstop position for the 2012 Giants -- extended his hitting streak to 14 games on Monday. As Brian Sabean put it, "He's done nothing to hurt his chances." Heading into the bottom of the ninth 0-for-4 with a strikeout, Brandon came up with an RBI single on a grounder through the right side to keep the streak alive. On the year he's hitting .309 (21-for-68) for the Scorps.

Austin Fleet pitched two shutout innings of relief on Monday, allowing two hits and a walk while striking out a pair of Salt River batters. The 24-year-old hurler lowered his ERA to 2.57 in nine appearances.

Seth Rosin also pitched two shutout innings out of the 'pen, but he was much more economical, retiring all six batters he faced. Rosin struck out two of those batters, and dropped his ERA to a pretty 1.00. Paulsen, Arenado lead Rafters to win


Nothing to report from the DWL. Brandon Belt's Leones del Escogido had the night off, and no other Giants prospects saw action in the only two games that took place.


The MPL had the night off on Monday, nothing to report.


The VWL had the night off on Monday, nothing to report.


The ABL had the night off on Monday, nothing to report.


Johnny Monell had a monster first game for the Criollos de Caguas on Sunday. The 25-year-old catching prospect went 3-for-3 with a double, a walk, a home run and two RBI while hitting eighth and doing the DHing.
