Player of the Day
Wednesday, June 26th POD goes to Ryan Borucki and Eric Pardinho
It is soooooo good to see Ryan Borucki pitching again and to put a little icing on the cake, Eric Pardinho is back on the mound.
Borucki threw 22, according to the boxscore, they were all for strikes. He got 4 groundball outs and no flyball outs. He struck out two batters in the first inning, allowing one batter to reach base via a throwing error. He struck out two more in the 2nd inning and two more in the 3rd inning.
Not bad for his first outing. Borucki will need a few rehab starts to get his pitch count up.
Pardinho was expected to anchor the Lansing Lugnuts rotation before landing on the IL prior to the start of the season. Eric took over for Borucki in the 4th inning, getting the first batter to go down looking at strike 3. He threw 21 of his 31 pitches for strikes. Pardinho walked a batter in the 5th and two in the 6th, all three on four straight balls. He surrendered his first base hit in the 7th inning but struck out the next batter to end the inning. Pardinho was helped out by the double play in the 5th and 6th innings, finishing three groundball outs and 2 flyball outs.
Pardinho finished with a line of 4.0IP, 1H, 0R, 3BB, 5K on 33 pitches.
The Bo Bichette and Griffin Conine Show
Bo Bichette batted leadoff and played SS. Bo went 2-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI, a walk, and a stolen base. Bichette is getting hot with four multi-hit games in a row and five over his last 6. He is batting .410 over his last 10 games and .306 in 26 Triple-A games. He has 8 doubles, a triple, 3HRs, 17 runs scored, and 8SB with 18RBI.
Griffin Conine got the day off to regroup. Conine went hitless in 5 at-bats whiffing 3x in his last game, batting .318 for the season but only .167 with 17K over his last 10 games.
