Player of the Day: San Francisco Giants 2013 1st round pick Christian Arroyo went 3-4 with two doubles, a triple, three runs, and an RBI for the AZL Giants.  Arroyo is 47-152 (.309) at the plate so far in his professional career.

Fresno Grizzlies – AAA Pacific Coast League

Highlights/News: (L 9-1) Reno had 12 hits, including 4 solo homeruns and a 2-run shot en route to a shellacking of Fresno.  SS Ehire Adrianza went 3-4 for the Grizzlies, raising his season average to .330,  Adrianza is on the 40-man roster for San Francisco – it’ll be interesting to see if he gets a call-up when the rosters expand in a couple of weeks.  On the flip side of that token, 40-man roster mainstay LHP Dan Runzler gave up 2 ER in 1 inning – not exactly making his case with a 6.06 ERA on the season.

At the Plate: Ehire Adrianza 3-4, 3B, BB

On the Mound: RHP Steve Edlefsen 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, HR; RHP Brett Bochy 2 IP, 1 H, 2 K, 0 BB (3.96 ERA in 2013)
