Duffy hits first home run at Class-A Advanced level
Matt Duffy seemed to transition his game from Augusta, Ga. to San Jose, Calif. with ease. That is, through eight games, at least.
He homered for the first time in a San Jose Giants uniform on Sunday night in Stockton, his third extra-base hit in those eight games. He was inserted into the two-spot in the order on July 22, and has done this since:
Ultimately, it's only added to what has been a consistently hot San Jose Giants team offensively. The second spot in the lineup is directly in front of San Jose's hottest hitter, right fielder Mac Williamson. The 6-foot, 5-inch almost-five-tool player hit two home runs a night earlier, with Duffy scoring on both. Sunday night, however, Duffy provided his own offense.

It remains to be seen whether Duffy will begin 2014 in San Jose or jump to Richmond, but he's doing all the right things so far.
