Tuesday, June 5th POD goes to Chavez Young.
The Nuts talented young outfielder did a little bit of everything in this game. Chavez Young went 2-for-3 with a double, triple, run scored, walk, a stolen base, and batted in 2 runs.
Chavez got the Bolts going in the 1st inning with a leadoff triple (5) and scored on a Kevin Vicuna ground ball out to short.
The 20-yr-old grounded out in the 3rd and produced a run in the 4th inning with a sac fly to cash in Yeltsin Gudino to make the scored 4 to 0.
The former 39th round pick walked in the 7th inning. He picked up his 15th stolen base with Kevin Vicuna at-bat and advanced to 3rd base on a passed ball. Unfortunately, he was doubled off 3rd base when Brandon Grudzielanek lined out to Zach Rutherford to end the inning.
With the scored 5 to 4 for the Lugnuts in the 9th inning, Chavez Young doubled (17) to score Reggie Pruitt, making the score 6 to 4. Lansing was able to hold for the win.
Overall, Chavez Young has looked very very good in 2018. He is batting .328 with 39 runs scored, 17 doubles, 5 triples, a pair of homers, 26 runs batted in, and 15 stolen bases. Over his past 10 games, Young is batting .439 with 7 multi-hit games and 6 stolen bases.
