West Sacramento, Calif. – Late in the game, news broke that the San Francisco Giants had acquired right-handed pitcher Mike Leake from the Cincinnati Reds. Shortly after, infielder Adam Duvall was pulled from the game for the Sacramento River Cats. It was confirmed after the game had concluded that Duvall was included in a trade to the Reds to bring Leake to San Francisco. The Giants also included RHP Keury Mella in the deal.
