Player of the Day: A little different twist today as this mention goes to the entire San Jose Giants team — because it can’t go to Mac Williamson everyday, right?  With their victory on Monday, San Jose has now won 10 straight behind stellar pitching and the perpetually hot bat of Williamson.  Over the 10 game win streak Williamson has gone 19 for 40 with 4 HR’s, 6 doubles, 14 runs, and 14 RBI.  San Jose starts their playoff run September 7th.

 Richmond Flying Squirrels – AA Eastern League

Highlights/News: (L 7-6) Richmond took a 2-run lead into the bottom of the 9th but Reading scored 2 on a game equalling homer then walked off with a solo shot in the 10th– all off Flying Squirrels closer Cody Hall.  Even with the disappointing night, Hall maintains a 1.85 ERA in 24.1 innings this season for the AA affiliate.

 San Jose Giants – High A California League

Highlights/News: (W 5-2) San Jose scored 3 in the 1st inning and that’s all #19 prospect Adalberto Mejia would need as he held Bakersfield to 2 runs over 6.1 innings, and the Giants cruised to their 10th straight victory.  All nine San Jose starters had a hit — Mac Williamson leading the way again with 3.  Williamson is now 19 for his last 40 (.475 BA) over his last 10 games with 4 HR’s, 6 doubles, 14 runs, and 14 RBI.
