Chris Dickerson: 2/4, 2 R, 2B, 3B, 2 BB, K (.271) Needed a game like this.
Kevin Russo: 2/4, 3 R, 2 BB, SB (14) (.295) Love this kid.
Corban Joseph: 2/5, R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K (.264) All of a sudden, with David Adams healthy, and Refsnyder in Low-A, second base is one of the deeper positions in the system.

Brandon Laird: 1/3, 2 R, HR (8), 2 RBI, 2 BB, K, E (14) (.238) 12 for his last 38 (.316), with four homeruns in his last 10 games.

Kevin Mahoney: 0/5, K (.284)
Addison Maruszak: 2/5, R, HR (11), RBI, 3 K (.298) I don’t know where this power spike is coming from, but good for him.

Mikey O’Brien: 4 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, BB, 3 K, HR (4.07 ERA) Not his best.
Graham “Cracker” Stoneburner: 3 IP, 3 H, ER, 3 K (3.45 ERA) I like him as a reliever.

  1. I read somewhere that Maruszak made an adjustment to his stance and really feels comfortable at the plate. That coincides with him getting red hot. If that's not just a coincidence, he's got a shot at being a prospect again.

  2. Greg Corcoran says:

    Wow. Good to hear. Hopefully it's for real.
