Friday, June 29th POD goes to the entire Bluefield lineup.

 

When your lineup scores 21 runs, it is a little hard to pick a single player to take the POD honors. Take a look at Bluefield’s boxscore.

 

CF- Dominic Abbadessa 2-for-4, 3-R, 3-BB

LF- Cal Stevenson 1-for-3, 5-R, RBI, 4-BB, SB

RF- DJ Neal 3-for-7, 2-R, 2B, 2-3B, 3-RBI, 3-K

C- Alejandro Kirk 2-for-5, 2-R, 2B, 4-RBI, BB

3B- John Aiello 2-for-4, 2-R, HR, 3-RBI, 2-BB, 1-K

1B- Patrick Morris 2-for-6, 2-R, RBI, BB

2B- Otto Lopez 5-for-6, 2-R, 2-2B, 3B, 3-RBI, SB

DH- Hagen Danner 1-for-6, RBI, 3-K

SS- Luis De Los Santos 2-for-5, 3-R, 3B, HR, 2-RBI, BB

 

Otto Lopez had a career game, missing the cycle by a home run. What a game.

 

Bo and Vlad Show

 

Vladimir Guerrero Jr remains of the 7-day DL

 

Bo Bichette had a POD worthy game. Bichette grounded out in the first inning. He hit his 21st double in the 4th inning. Bo singled and scored in the 6th inning on a Harold Ramirez home run to pull the Fisher Cats to within  2 runs, Trenton 5 and NH 3. After a Jon Berti walk to lead off the 8th inning, Bo Bichette jumped on the first pitch he saw, sending a 2-run shot over the left field wall to tie the game up at 6’s.  Bo grounded out in his final at-bat in the 9th inning.

 

Overall, Bo Bichette is .285 with 21 doubles, 5 triples, and 8 HR while driving in 44 runs and stealing 24 bases. Over the past 10 games Bo is batting .302 with 3 HR and 11RBI.
