Giants' AFL Prospects: week ending 11/06/2004

How the Giants prospects fared this week in the AFL.

The Grand Canyon Rafters had a good week, going 4-2 to improve to 12-13. Some of the Giants prospects, in particular Mike Cervenak, helped with that improvement in their win/loss record.

Mike Cervenak - Cervenak finally broke out this week and in a big way. He hit .381/.381/.762/1.143 in 21 AB with 2 2B and 2 HR, 5 runs scored, and 8 RBI with only 2 strikeouts.

Fred Lewis - Did not play much, despite some good games last week. He hit .000/.125/.000/.125 in 7 AB with 1 run and 1 RBI in 4 games. His strikeout bugaboo was evident again, with 3 SO in his 7 AB.

Lance Niekro - Did not play at all this past week. This could explain why he didn't play in all the games last week despite doing well. I searched around and could not find out what happened to him. I will try to find something by next week's report.

David Aardsma - Relieved 3 games, 3.0 IP, giving up 3 hits and 3 walks, with 3 strikeouts, 1 run/ER, 3.00 ERA.

Chris Begg - Relieved 2 games, 3.2 IP, giving up 4 hits and 2 walks, with 0 strikeouts, 2 runs/ER, 4.91 ERA. He got his first win of the AFL season despite his poor performance for the week.

Scott Munter - Relieved 2 games, 3.0 IP, giving up 4 hits and 0 walks, with 1 strikeout, 1 run/ER, 3.00 ERA.

Martin Lee writes 'A Biased Giant's Fanatic's View' for when the mood and muse strikes him. He wants to teach and share his love of baseball and, in particular, his love for theSan Francisco Giants. He will believe to his dying days that Bobby Bonds was robbed of being the first 40-40 player and should be in Cooperstown.
