Just a couple more observations from the farm tonight:
Garrett Richards appears to have been promoted to the Quakes, and is starting tonight against High Desert. Quite an assignment, since the Mavericks lead the Cal League in every batting category.
Meanwhile, Mike Trout has been in something of a tailspin the past two weeks, with only one hit against nine strikeouts in his past five games, while hitting .200 over his past ten. Looks like they gave him the night off.
