Reynolds notches career-high five hits for San Jose

Bryan Reynolds came up just short of a cycle, but he still put together quite a day at the plate as Class A Advanced San Jose topped Modesto, 12-8.

The Giants' No. 3 prospect collected a career-high five hits as he finished 5-for-6 with four RBIs and a run scored.

"I didn't hit it where they were standing this time," Reynolds told "I've been doing that a lot recently. I tried to make an adjustment and hit it where they aren't standing."

Reynolds, a second-round pick from the 2016 Draft, gave the Giants an early 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the top of the first. The 22-year-old singled again in the third and drove in three with a triple that highlighted a five-run fourth.

He then doubled in the sixth, and with two more chances to complete the cycle, Reynolds singled in the eighth and grounded out in the ninth.

"It feels great. I've been struggling a bit as of recently and it feels nice to hit it somewhere nobody's at," Reynolds said. "We only did BP in the cage before the game. I was just trying to get loose. It wasn't like I had an epiphany before the game. It was just one of those days that happens."

After hitting .313 in 56 games across two levels last season, Reynolds is batting .281 through 37 games in his first stint with San Jose. Reynolds got off to a bit of a slow start, hitting .253 in 21 games games during April, but he has picked it up lately by going 13-for-30 (.433) over his past seven games and is batting .318 in the month of May.
