Minor League Notebook: June 14th

The staff ace at Fresno goes for another shutout, and the speedster at Augusta goes for another few stolen bases. Just another day in the minors!

Fresno Grizzlies (AAA): Fresno 7, Colorado Springs 0
WP: M. Cain (4-2, 3.63)
LP: J. Hampson (1-6, 5.40)
Matt Cain answered an outing in which he was ejected with one of his best outings of the season and his first win in several weeks. Cain went 7 shutout innings, giving up 4 hits and 2 walks while striking out 8. He had been ejected from his last start in Salt Lake for throwing behind a batter after giving up his 2nd home run in 2 innings. The Fresno offense supported Cain with 3 home runs, one by Brian Dallimore and one by Mike Cervenak, both possible replacements for Lance Niekro on the Giants should Niekro’s recent toe injury require time on the DL.

Notable Performances:
Mike Cervenak: 2-4, 2 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 SO, .309
Brian Dallimore: 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 SB, .276
Yamid Haad: 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 SO, .283
Matt Cain: 7.0 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 8 SO, 3.63 ERA
Jeremy Accardo: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 SO, 2.92 ERA

Norwich Navigators (AA): Altoona 10, Norwich 4
WP: P. Maholm (4-2, 3.48)
LP: J. Garcia (3-6, 5.19)
It seemed no pitchers for the Navigators could stop the flood, as everyone ended up allowing runs in an Altoona blowout. Starter James Garcia gave up 4 runs, Anthony Pannone gave up three and Oscar Montero gave up one. Only Erick Threets got through with his ERA unscathed, but only because the two runs he gave up were unearned. Tyler Von Schell had 2 RBI for the Navigators.

Notable Performances:
Tyler Von Schell: 2-5, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 SO, .224
Daniel Ortmeier: 2-5, 1 R, 2 SO, 1 E, .265
James Garcia: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 SO, 1 HBP, 5.19 ERA
Erick Threets: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 SO, 1 E, 5.34 ERA

San Jose Giants (High-A): San jose 5, Stockton 2
WP: S. Song (5-2, 1.95)
LP: T. Peterson (3-6, 5.82)
SV: J. Bateman (6)
Seung Song had another big start for San Jose, giving up 1 run in 5 innings to earn his 5th win of the year. Eliezer Alfonzo hit his 13th home run of the year and had 4 RBI overall for the Giants. Nate Schierholtz went 2 for 4 with a double and a stolen base.

Notable Performances:
Eliezer Alfonzo: 2-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 4 RBI, .359

Jesus Reina: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO, 3.82 ERA
Joe Bateman: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 SO, 1.81 ERA

Augusta GreenJackets (Mid-A): Augusta 8, Charleston 7 (11 Innings)
WP: B. Wilson (5-1, 0.62)
LP: T. Beam (1-3, 2.11)
Charleston looked like it was going to take the game easily putting up 7 runs in one inning off of Mike Musgrave and Ben Thurmond, but a late inning comeback, including 4 in the 9th, allowed the GreenJackets to extend the game to extra frames, where they won it. The winning rally started with two outs, as Alex Requena hit a bunt single and then stole 2nd. Marcus Sanders then singled home Requena. Sanders also had 2 stolen bases on the day, bringing his total for the year up to 38.

Notable Performances:
Marcus Sanders: 3-5, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SO, 2 SB, 1 E, .304
Alex Requena: 2-4, 2 R, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 SB, 1 CS, .257
Mike Wagner: 2-6, 2 RBI, 3 SO, .307
Mike Musgrave: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 1 SO, 4.33 ERA
Brian Wilson: 3.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 SO, 0.62 ERA
