Player of the Day
Wednesday, July 3rd POD goes to Joseph Reyes
This could have easily gone to Buffalo’s Patrick Kivlehan, going 4-for-6 with three runs scored, a double, two home runs, three RBI, a walk, and a strikeout. However, I decided to reward Bluefield’s Joseph Reyes for his recent power surge.
The 21-yr-old native of New York, NY., is a non-drafted free agent signed in 2016. Over the last 4 games, Reyes has gone deep three times. On June 29th, Joseph Reyes hit his first HR as a member of the Bluefield Blue Jays. He hit his 2nd HR on July 2nd, driving in 3 runs, walking twice, and scoring 2 runs.
On Wednesday, Reyes played 3rd base and batted 6th. He went 3-for-4, with a pair of runs scored, a home run, and a walk. Reyes singled in the 4th inning but was stranded. He stroked an RBI single after a double steal which resulted in Spencer Horwitz stealing home plate.
Joseph Reyes hit a three-run homer to RF in the 7th inning putting the Blue Jays ahead 9 to 5. Reyes walked in his final at-bat in the 9th inning and scored off a D.J. Daniels single.
The Bo Bichette and Griffin Conine Show
Bo Bichette played both ends of the Bisons’ doubleheader. In GM1 Bo went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a strikeout. In GM2 Bo went 1-for-4 with an RBI. Overall in 34 games at the Triple-A level, Bo Bichette is batting .302 with 21RBI and an .825OPS
Griffin Conine had the night off on Wednesday. The Lansing’s RF has pushed his batting average from .306 to .330 over the hit streak and is batting .297 over his last 10 games. He has 6 doubles, 23RBI, and a 1.081OPS in 29 games.
