Fellow outfield prospects D.J. Stewart and Cedric Mullins had great games as well: Stewart was 3-5 and hit his ninth homer of the season, while Mullins was 3-5 with a pair of doubles. That’s what I like to see.
It took until the 12th inning for the Shorebirds to get the edge. Chris Clare, Alejandro Juvier, and Ryan McKenna, all of whom had two hits in the ballgame, were involved in the two run rally in the 12th inning. Preston Palmeiro, son of Rafael, was 1-3 and walked three times in the game. Credit to starting pitcher John Means for blanking the RubberDucks for eight innings, holding them to just six hits and two walks in that time.
I think some of the teams have already shown promise, such as North Academy, Fragsters and Tricked. They are all on the verge of breaking through. It is hard to say if it will require a mix up of those teams to get the right composition, but most of those players are kind of known these days. They are close to being Top 30 teams, and it will be exciting to watch them in the upcoming season.
No. I don’t think I’m going to do anymore, but that’s the only one that could possibly be done.
