The San Francisco Giants added Travis Ishikawa as a minor league free agent back in June, and after having a pretty good run with the River Cats he has really broken out the whooping stick over the past week.
The River Cats took the opening game but the Chihuahuas bit back and took the second game of the double header. Sacramento took the series three games to one.
The River Cats win their fifth game in six tries.
Travis Ishikawa won't end up heading to the Seattle Mariners after all.

Travis Ishikawa, 31, was the Pirates’ opening day first baseman last season before heading back to the Giants and eventually becoming a postseason hero. Ishikawa had the game the Pirates were waiting for since they claimed him off the waiver wire on July 3. He drove in four runs as the Bucs downed the Royals 10-7. PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko spoke with Ishikawa recently.
The San Francisco Giants will keep Travis Ishikawa, as well as signing Kevin Frandsen and releasing Kevin Correia.
For all of the crazy ways the San Francisco Giants scored runs during the NLCS, perhaps their most surprising runs were saved for last. Travis Ishikawa, who had only 81 at-bats during the regular season for the Giants, blasted a walk-off, three-run homerun to push the Giants into the 2014 World Series.
