Dylan Davis hits grand slam for first pro homer

Dylan Davis got to return to the state where he starred collegiately last week as he joined other top hitters from the recent draft in Salem, Ore. But a 1-for-17 slump with six strikeouts entering Tuesday night's game couldn't have felt good. The Giants' third-round pick only picked up one hit in five plate appearances, but the one connection was a grand slam that ignited one of the largest comebacks in Volcanoes history. The homer was his first as a pro, but not his first extra base hit as the corner outfielder cranked out seven doubles in nine games with the AZL team.

Two other bats went deep in a crazy 14-11 win for the Volcanoes, including Ryder Jones and Hunter Cole, and Christian Arroyo extended his hit streak to seven games with a 2-for-5 evening.

Martin Agosta allowed one hit over five solid innings for the San Jose Giants. The right-hander from Sacramento did walk four, but managed to allow just one earned run and strike out four.

Mitch Delfino upped his average to .290 with a four-hit night. He leads all Giants minor leaguers with 134 hits this season.

Daniel Carbonell picked up his first extra-base hit — an RBI triple — in the San Jose Giants 4-1 win over Rancho Cucamonga. He also drew a walk and did not strike out.
