Saturday, July 28th POD goes to Forrest Wall
The newly acquired former Yard Goat made a good impression on his new teammates with a 3-for-4 game. He played CF and batted out of the leadoff spot for New Hampshire. Forrest Wall crossed the plate three times hitting a double and a pair of singles, and walked. Wall singled to get the game started and scored on Harold Ramirez‘ 27th double of the year.
The 6-foot-0 outfielder, former 2nd baseman singled but did not score in the 2nd inning. He walked and scored in the 4th inning. Leading off the 7th inning, Forrest Wall hit his 7th double and scored on a Bo Bichette double to push the scored to 8 to 1 for the Fisher Cats. He struck out swinging in his final at-bat in the 8th inning.
In 48 Double-A games, Wall is batting .219 with 31 runs scored, 7 doubles, a triple, and 7 HR while driving in 13 RBI.
Cal Stevenson On-Base Streak
Cal Stevenson and the Bluefield Blue Jays had their game suspended due to power loss. Stevenson did have three at-bats, picking up his home run, a single, and a walk. Saturday’s game will be played on Sunday at which time we can say Stevenson has extended his on-base streak to 32 games.
Bo and Vlad Show
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. did not play since he will be attending Sunday’s HOF inductions. VGJ will be heading to the Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday, so his time in NH is done. He finishes his Fisher Cats career, hopefully, with a .402 batting average, .449 OBP, and .671 while driving in 60 RBI and crushing 14 HR.
Bo Bichette had a big day in VGJ absence and might be sending the Blue Jays FO a message…..I want to go to Buffalo too. The 20-yr-old SS doubled home Andrew Guillotte and Forest Wall in the 4th inning. In the 7th inning, Bo was at it again, driving in Forest Wall with his 30th double and an 8 to 1 lead for the Fisher Cats. In his final at-bat, Bo hit his 10th jack, scoring Eduard Pinto. Bichette finished with a 5-RBI and pushed his batting average up to .273.
