Adalberto Mejia throws seven-plus scoreless innings

BOX SCORES: SAC / RIC / SJ

Using just 69 pitches, Adalberto Mejia lowered his ERA to 2.70 with 7.2 scoreless innings for the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Considering he went 90 pitches his last start, it's surprising that he was pulled after issuing a walk with two outs in the eighth. Nonetheless, it's his second straight quality start since a rough outing on April 26.

Tyler Rogers continued his scoreless innings streak, pushing it to 13.2 in the 2016 season spanning 15 outings. Dating back to the end of last year, Rogers has allowed just one run in his last 24.1 innings.

OTHER NOTES

Martin Agosta returned to the San Jose Giants after a brief stint up in Sacramento, followed by some time in Extended Spring Training. The departure of Andrew Suarez to Richmond opened a slot for Agosta to make a spot start on Wednesday in Bakersfield, and the Sacramento native pitched four innings and allowed just one hit and one walk. He's now gone 11.1 innings in the California League in 2016 without giving up a run.

— This highlight is from the other day, but needs to be seen. It's the switch-hitting urban legend, Miguel Gomez, hitting a home run of Braves' highly-touted prospect Touki Toussaint. Gomez has been a hitting machine since reaching the United States, and is slashing .366/.422/.537 in 46 plate appearances this season.
