Brandon Belt continued his rehab assignment with the San Jose Giants for his second game against Visalia. Belt blasted a home run to right in his first at-bat of the night, but then was drilled in his right arm with a 95 MPH fastball in his second at-bat.

Belt remained in the game after getting hit by the pitch and flew out in his third at-bat. The Giants first baseman finished the night 2-for-3 with a home run and a single. 

In his first rehab game with the San Jose Giants Thursday, Belt went 1-for-3 with a single, a groundout, a strikeout, and a HBP.
