Reynolds records second straight three-hit game

BOX SCORES: RIC / SJ / AUG

Not even one full inning into Friday night's Sacramento River Cats game, rain ceased play for the second straight night. Also for the second straight night, the Giants' second-round selection from the 2016 draft Bryan Reynolds notched three singles into the box score, this time picking up a hit from the right side of the plate, as well. 

Shortstop Ryan Howard, hitting in front of Reynolds in the lineup, also singled three times. The San Jose Giants racked up 16 hits all together, scoring 10 runs and beating the 66ers 10-3 behind an impressive night from the pitching staff and defense, who kept the opposition to just three runs on 12 hits.

In Richmond, the Flying Squirrels were held in check by Jack Wynkoop for six and a third innings. Just one run on five hits went onto the scoreboard for Richmond, two of which came from leadoff man Slade Heathcott. The season debut for Andrew Suarez was riddled with seven hits, including two doubles and a home run, but featured zero walks and a strikeout per inning.

OTHER NOTES

— Augusta was held to just three hits Friday, but at least kept Tim Tebow in the yard. GreenJackets' starter D.J. Myers recorded one of his six strikeouts against Tebow, but Myers lasted just 3.1 innings after reaching 74 pitches.

— Sacramento's barely-started game Friday will be resumed July 8, while Thursday's opener will be made up on Monday as part of a doubleheader, beginning at 4pm.
