Brandon McCarthy‘s second minor league rehab game went one inning longer than the first. The right-hander allowed two runs in three innings Thursday for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga in San Jose, including one home run. He walked no batters and struck out four.
The Giants were 3-for-3 on stolen base attempts against McCarthy, who needed 48 pitches to get through the three innings. He pitched two innings for the Quakes last Saturday in Lake Elsinore.
Hyun-jin Ryu will make a rehab start for Rancho Cucamonga tomorrow, his second since re-starting his minor league assignment.
Yasiel Puig played seven innings in right field, and singled, walked and stole a base in three plate appearances. He’s expected to play another seven innings tomorrow.
