Let’s start off with a hearty congratulations to Ryder Jones, who’s been possibly the best storyline the farm’s had this year. That power plays, young man!

And secondly, Baseball America‘s Ben Badler posted a long video yesterday, behind the scenes at a Dominican Prospect League showcase in Illinois. It’s long, but I can’t recommend this enough for it’s look into how the sausage gets made at this level. Seriously, we say this all the time, but nobody covers the international beat like Ben.

HIGHLIGHTS: Andrew Suarez allowed 2 ER in 7 IP; Franklin Labour reached base three times with a triple.

Sacramento won at Iowa Cubs, 4-2 in 11 inn

Andrew Suarez kept the roll going last night with another strong 7 inning effort. Suarez has now allowed 2 ER or fewer in each of his last four starts. This was his third consecutive 7 inning start, over which time he’s allowed a total of 3 runs while striking out 21 batters and walking just four. Last night’s start was the first time since his promotion to AAA that he had allowed no walks, and just the third time overall this year. The 24 year old, who holds the curious distinction of being a 2nd round draft choice twice, is finishing his second full season in style and definitely putting himself in contention for some major league starts in the next year.

(I used that clip because I figured you all wanted to know what’s become of Chris Dominguez these days) Sadly, Andrew might have been sent out there for just one batter too many, as he opened up the 8th inning by surrendering a leadoff double. That ended his night and Derek Law, after getting two quick outs, gave up a two-out RBI single to tie the game up.

And there it stayed for awhile. But in the 11th, Mac Williamson drew a leadoff walk, stole 2b and went on to 3b on an errant throw from the Catcher. Jae-Gyun Hwang singled him in with the go ahead run and would later come around to score himself on a Wild Pitch. The RiverCats had just six hits in the game, but benefitted from seven walks from Cubs pitching, and stole four bases.

Tyler Rogers finished things off with his league leading 45th appearance. The sidewinder has allowed just 3 ER over his last 26 IP, a streak that stretches back to June 19. Rogers, too, is pitching himself into a chance to join his twin brother in the major leagues (figuratively, I mean, not literally, since his brother doesn’t play for the Giants). Rogers certainly provides a different look for most hitters, with a rising pitch action that more closely resembles softball than most professional pitchers’ offerings. Opportunities are out there, Tyler.

So, do we want to watch Chris Shaw bash one off the wall? Of course, we do!

The play by play man had most of the relevant details: 11 game hit streak, 30 of his 70 hits in the PCL have gone for XBH (he has 46 XBH overall this year). What I find interesting is that he again went after the first pitch here. The last few days it’s seemed to me that Shaw has been working to find the balance in being selectively aggressive and hunting pitches he can do damage on early, and staying away from some of the pitchers’ counts that have plagued him. An ongoing education at work.

Richmond had an off day

San Jose Giants had an off day

But that doesn’t mean they didn’t have news to share:

Congrats to both Jonah and Dylan!
