Catcher Andrew Susac, the Giants' No. 4 prospect, hit two home runs Tuesday, leading Triple-A Fresno to a 7-4 victory at Reno.

It was the second multi-homer game of Susac's career. He finished the day 2-for-3 with a walk. In 21 games this season, he is hitting .329 with six home runs and a 1.061 OPS.

Susac suffered a concussion April 21 and spent more than two weeks on the disabled list. He has swung a hot bat since being activated from the DL last Thursday. In five games since returning to the lineup, he is hitting .444 with four home runs.

Susac got some help Tuesday from the rest of Fresno's offense. Second baseman Joe Panik, the Giants' No. 14 prospect, went 2-for-5 and hit his second homer of the season. Adam Duvall also added a home run, his 13th of the season. He is now tied for the Minor League lead.

Right-hander Heath Hembree, the Giants' No. 11 prospect, pitched a scoreless ninth for the save. He leads the Pacific Coast League with eight saves this season.
