#SFGiants Minors Rundown: 8/20

Player of the Day: AA Richmond first baseman Angel Villalona went 3-6 with a HR, double, and 2 RBI in the Flying Squirrels doubleheader today.  The HR marks Villalona’s 21st of the season – 7 with Richmond and 14 with San Jose.  Guillermo Quiroz could have easily gotten Player of the Day again – he hit in the go-ahead runs (for the second night in a row) with a double in Fresno’s game against Reno – but tonight goes to the kid for variety’s sake.

Update: Angel Pagan went 2-4 with 2 runs and a triple today for the AZL Giants.  It was announced prior to the Giants game tonight that he will be joining the AAA Fresno Grizzlies Friday to continue his rehab.

Fresno Grizzlies – AAA Pacific Coast League

Highlights/News: (W 4-2) Guillermo Quiroz had a go-ahead hit for the second consecutive day, this time a 2-run double that sealed the victory for Fresno over Reno.  Eric Surkamp went seven innings for the 5th start in a row, giving up only 2 ER – in his previous 4 he had gone 7 and given up just 1 ER in each.
