Giants Minor League Affiliates In Action – May 13


The San Francisco Giants affiliates were in action on Wednesday, with Triple-A Sacramento River Cats, Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels and Class A-Advanced San Jose Giants on the schedule, but Class-A Full Season Augusta GreenJackets are not slated to play until Thursday.

So far in 2015, the River Cats are 17-17, in second place and trail by only a game. The Flying Squirrels are 11-19, in last place and trail by 8.5 games, but are 8-2 in their last 10 games. The Giants are 11-22, in last place and 13 games out of first place. The GreenJackets are 17-14, in second place, 1.5 games out of first and on a four game winning streak with seven wins in their last 10 games.

Below are the scores from Wednesday’s match-ups:


On Wednesday, the Sacramento (17-17) took on Las Vegas (24-10) for game two of their four game series looking for payback as they dropped game one, 12-8. But Vegas showed why they are tough to beat this season as they once again took care of the River Cats with a 5-1 victory.

The River Cats sent Ty Blach to the mound against 51’s Darin Gorski, and tried to match the zeros on the board but could only contain Vegas for one inning, as they scored two runs in the bottom of the second, when Eric Campbell and Cory Vaughn both scored on a Danny Muno RBI single. Sacramento would get a run back in the top of the third on an RBI double by Ehire Adrianza to draw within 2-1.

The 51’s would add a run in each of their half of the inning in the fifth, sixth and seventh, on an RBI double by Kyle Johnson, an Eric Campbell home run and an RBI single by Johnson, to extend the score to 5-1 and put the game away for good.

The Richmond Flying Squirrels (11-19) took on the Binghamton Mets (19-14) in the Rubber game of their three game set on Wednesday and came away with a 2-1 series victory.

After three scoreless frames the Mets struck first and scored a run in the top of the third inning when Aderlin Rodriguez scored on a sac fly by Gilbert Gomez.

Binghamton pitchers kept Richmond off the board until the bottom of the sixth when the Flying Squirrels finally broke through. They added a run of their own on a wild pitch scoring Mitch Delfino to tie the game at 1-1.

The game remained tight the rest of the way as both offenses were kept off the scoreboard until the bottom of the 10th when the Flying Squirrels plated the winning run on a single by Delfino scoring Rando Moreno.

The San Jose Giants (11-22) dropped the first game of the season to the Modesto Nuts (17-16) on Tuesday 4-2 at John Thurman Field, and on Wednesday they were able to even up the two game series with a 4-2 victory of their own.

Both teams remained scoreless until the top of the second when the Giants scored three runs to take a quick 3-0 lead. The runs came home on a fielders choice by Matt Pare plating Dylan Davis. Then two more runs scored on a two RBI double from Jesus Galindo.

The Nuts answered back with two of their own in their half of the frame, when Ramiel Tapia reached on a fielding error scoring both Ashley Graeter and Dillon Thomas to come within a run at 3-2.

From that point on, both teams pitching would shut down the offfense until Giants were able to break through with a run in the top of the eighth with a sac fly by Ryder Jones scoring Ryan Lollis with the deciding run. The Giants earned the split as they look to continue their winning ways and climb out of the bottom of the pack.
