Holt got on base 3 times and was also robbed of a probably 1-2 rbis by a diving catch by top Giants prospect CF Gary Brown.  Holt, however, guessed wrong on 2 base stealing attempts by the Richmond LHP.

Jarek Cunningham looked awful at the plate with 3 Ks and he hit into a DP with the bases loaded to kill the Curve’s best scoring opportunity of the night.  However, Jarek’s bat speed is elite and easily the best in the system.

Tony Sanchez had a double and single and nearly another 2 bagger that the RF snagged.  He looked very fluid around home plate but his arm wasnt tested.

Lance Ray hit a bomb that would’ve been well gone on any other day but Rojas caught it at the wall for a sac fly. Not a good outing for Cole, even heard one of the other outs was a hard hit liner right at an outfielder(either his last out or the 2nd out in the 2nd inning)

I think’s it’s 3 in his last 2 games.

That’s exciting to follow that group on a daily basis.

A. Rendon has broke his ankle again.  Poor guy just cant stay healthy.  Can you imagine what it would be like on here if we would have drafted him, instead of Cole, and he did this…..  It would be the curse of bonds all over again.
