Even when having his 10-game hitting streak snapped, Nick Baligod made an impact.

In Thursday’s 4-3 win over Lakeland, Baligod walked and stole a base for the Dunedin Blue Jays, Toronto’s team in the Class A advanced Florida State League.

Prior to that the Fairfield High grad had batted .366 (15 for 41) in the 10-game run to raise his season batting average to .261.

Andrew Aplin (Vanden) made a successful jump from Corpus Cristi of the Double-A Texas League to Oklahoma City of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League, going 4 for 9 in his first two games and batting .292 (7 for 24) in his first week with the RedHawks.

Aplin also walked three times to give him a .370 on-base percentage and drove in four runs and stole two bases.

He was hitting .267 with six home runs and 50 RBIs when called up from the Hooks.

For Drew Carpenter (Vacaville), the most important stat is the win column. The 6-foot-3 right-hander improved to 3-1 for the Albuquerque Isotopes, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ team in the PCL, by getting the victory in a (12-5) win over Tacoma on Monday.

Carpenter gave up seven hits and five runs with four strikeouts and two walks.

Jordan Brown (Vacaville) had three multi-hit games for the Piratas de Campeche of the Triple-A Mexican League, getting three hits twice and two hits once to bat .360 for the week.

On Thursday he was 3 for 4 with a double, home run and five RBIs against the Tigres de Quintana Roo. That upped his average to .332 in 56 games with the Piratas.

Three area players remain sidelined with their respective teams.

Geno Escalante (Rodriguez) hasn’t played since July 3 with the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, the San Francisco Giants’ team in Class A Northwest League despite being on the active list.

Jonathan Jones (Vanden) of the Toronto Blue Jays organization is on the Temporary Inactive List with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats of the Double-A Eastern League and hasn’t played since June 26.

Ryan Lipkin (Vanden) is on the 7-day Disabled List with the Stockton Ports, the Oakland A’s team in the California League, and last played on July 20.

Former Cal State Monterey Bay standout A.J. Quintero (Vacaville) joins Kagen Hopkins (Vacaville, Solano) Ethan Gibbons (Armijo, Solano) and Dustin Crenshaw (Solano) on the pitching staff of the Gary Southshore RailCats of the independent American Association. Quintero was signed on Friday.

Hopkins is on the disabled list after pitching 3 1-3 scoreless innings over two outings last week.

Gibbons (0-2) suffered his second loss of the season by yielding a run and two hits in an inning during a 4-3 loss to Lincoln. He had three scoreless innings in his two other outings.

Crenshaw likewise had a tough week, dropping two decisions after giving up 10 hits and four runs in a 5-3 loss to Lincoln and four hits and two runs in a 4-1 loss to Fargo. Overall he pitched 13 innings and saw his ERA go over 3.00 to 3.02 after the first game, only to drop back to 2.99 following the second.

Chris Elder (Armijo, Solano) of the independent Frontier League’s Evansville Otters extended his hitting streak to nine games by going 2 for 3 with a double in a 3-1 loss to Joliet on Thursday. Doing so pushed his average to .270.
