Let’s start in A ball:
—Redleg Nation Spotlight Player Logan Parker continued his torrid hitting, going 3-4 with a homer and two RBI. The 23 year old 1B from the University of Cincinnati is now hitting .287/.372/.410 on the season.
In July, Parker is hitting .397 with a 1159 OPS. I’d say he’s making a big push to be the Redleg Nation Minor League Player of the Month.
–Another very hot Dragon is 22 y/o LF Chris Heisey, who went 2-4 last night. On the year, Heisey is putting up good numbers: .304/.367/.464.
–Louisville managed two measly hits, one of which was a double by Jay Bruce. That is all.
–24 y/o 1B Adam Rosales hit two homers, giving him 5 on the season (since being promoted). At AA, he’s now hitting a very solid .290/.355/.533.
–28 y/o SS Caonabo Cosme had his second straight good game, going 4-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, and three RBI. On the year, Cosme is .266/.294/.440. With that OBP, Cosme compares favorably with Alex Gonzalez and Juan Castro.
–SP Carlos Fisher gave up two runs on 6 hits in five innings. He struck out 4 and walked two in earning his second straight win.
–Three measly hits. SS Chris Valaika had two of them, however, in a 2-4 night. Looks like Valaika may be beginning to get his feet under him since the promotion to Sarasota.
Billings, Ogden (Rookie)
–Not a lot to be excited about here. 20 y/o SS Kevyn Feiner went 2-4 with a 3B and a run scored in his second game since arriving from the Gulf Coast League.
—Brandon Menchaca, a 22 year old CF from the University of Delaware (the Blue Hens!) hit his 6th homer.
–21 y/o LHP Andrew Bowman, drafted out of the University of Nebraska, had a strong start, going 5 innings while allowing just one run on 6 hits. Bowman struck out three and walked none.
