Giants prospect Gary Brown shines in Arizona Fall League

Jennifer Hilderbrand-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The San Francisco Giants are well represented in the Arizona Fall League this year, and Gary Brown is looking to make the most of his time there.

On a day that the San Francisco Giants moved on to the NLCS, a number of future Giants were getting some work down in the Arizona Fall League, including the likes of Gary Brown and Joe Panik.

Brown went 3-for-5 with two RBIs during the Scottsdale Scorpions loss to the Salt River Rafters on Thursday by the score of 6-5. He singled to start the game, extended Scottsdale's lead to 3-1 with an RBI single in the fourth and singled home a run to in the ninth as well.

Brown had a terrific season for the Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels, batting .279 with 73 runs and 33 stolen bases. He is hoping that the AFL will give him a head start on making an impression during Spring Training next year. "I always say it's a game of adjustments and that's what I'm doing here," the California native said. "I'm trying to work on and minimize my flaws and put myself in the best chance to make the club next year."

Other Giants prospects include Ricky Oropesa, who went 2-for-3 with a pair of runs and Joe Panik, who scored a run but went 0-4 at the plate. Reliever Dan Runzler is getting some work in the AFL as well, tossing 0.2 innings with one strikeout.
