Giants' No. 1 prospect Kyle Crick struck out a season-high 10 batters in five scoreless innings Wednesday and Double-A Richmond defeated Harrisburg, 6-2.

It was Crick's second scoreless outing of at least five innings this season. He allowed just one hit -- a double in the fourth inning. While Crick proved to be difficult to hit Wednesday, he was also wild. He walked five batters and threw two wild pitches.

For the second consecutive start, Crick set a season high for strikeouts. In his last outing, he whiffed seven batters in 4 2/3 innings. On Wednesday, Crick was one strikeout shy of matching his career high of 11, which he reached twice last season.

With the victory, Crick, ranked No. 27 on MLBPipeline.com's Top 100 Prospects list, improved to 5-3 with a 3.52 ERA in 13 starts this season. He has struck out 60 batters and walked 38 in 53 2/3 innings.
