Friday, July 20th POD goes to Nash Knight

 

Okay, boys and girls, this will be a quick spotlight as I am heading down the Jays game today which starts at 1PM-ish.

 

Nash has quietly had a nice season for the Dunedin Blue Jays. He played 3rd base and hit out of the 7th spot in the line up on Friday. His first AB came in the 2nd inning with Kacy Clemens (double) on 2nd base and 2-out. Nash cashed Clemens in with a run-scoring single through the left side of the infield and advanced to 2nd base on the throw. Dunedin up 1 to 0.

 

Nash Knight hit a fly ball out to lead off the 5th inning. He came to the plate in the 7th inning with Ivan Castillo at 1st base, taking a 2-0 pitch over the left field walk for a 2-run jack, his 3rd of the season. Dunedin up 4 to 3.

 

He struck out in the 9th to end his day.

 

Nash is batting .241 with 4 runs scored, 2 homers, and 4-RBI over the past 10 games. Overall, he is batting .252 with .664 OPS, 33-R, 11-2B, 1-3B, 4-HR, and 38 runs batted in.

 

Bo and Vlad Show

 

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Vladdy is back in NH, playing 3rd base, and batting 3rd. He went 2-for-4 with his 58th run batted on the year. He is batting .408 with 44 runs scored, 18 doubles, a triple, 11 HR, and 56 RBI with the Fisher Cats.
