Streaks happen. Good and bad. Sometimes, a good streak can be enough to turn a rough day into a win (just ask the Golden State Warriors). Sometimes, it can ruin a season. Today, two teams reached notable streaks, one good and one not-so-good.
But first, Roger takes a moment to tell us the state of the pitching in the systemâ?¦
San Jose Giants’ pitchers issued their 200th BB of season 2day. Its May 15. Only 3 teams in all pro ball have 150BBs. One of them is Augusta

Not a great game for Chris Stratton or the River Cats offense as the Triple-A Giants-Dodgers rivalry got underway. As you can see, Oklahoma City’s starter Wilmer Font (who came into the game with a 4.89 ERA) held a perfect game through 6 innings. At that point, he had averaged 2 strikeouts an inning. Although he gave up a run on two hits and a walk in that 7th inning, he struck out the side and ended up with 15 strikeouts. Three River Cats ended up with hat tricks: Orlando Calixte, Carlos Moncrief and Juniel Querecuto.
Kyle Blanks gave the River Cats their lone big offensive highlight. He came up to pinch-hit in the 9th, and hit a three run home run, his third big fly of the season. Out of the three other hits the Cats got, Jae-Gyun Hwang got the only other extra-base hit, his 11th double of the season.
It didn’t help that Stratton lost control for one of his roughest starts of the year. Stratton gave up a season-high four walks, and went a season-low 3.1 innings in the start, as his ERA skyrocketed back up to 5.96. The game leaves Strattong with a 17:8 K:BB ratio, in 22.2 IP.
