Player of the Day

Thursday, July 11th POD goes to Christian Williams

 

The 24-yr-old 1st baseman continues to show improvements in 2019 with a strong 2-for-5 game which saw him hit his 3rd HR and his 2nd triple while driving in 4 runs. Playing 1st base and batting 8th, Williams struck out in his first two at-bats. The 6-foot-3 native of Stuart, FL., hit a triple to CF to score Chad Spanberger to give the Fisher Cats a 10 to 0 lead but he was left stranded as Lundquist and Capra grounded out final two outs of the inning.

 

Christian Williams came to the plate in the 9th inning with the game well in hand (10 to 6). He watched Warmoth draw a leadoff walk and Riley Adams single to CF to put runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs. He watched Spanberger and Kevin Smith go down swinging. Williams wasted little time jumping on a 0-1 pitch, spending it over the CF wall for a 3-run jack.

 

Williams is batting .297 with 2HR and 7 RBI over his last 10 games. He is batting .254 with a .708 OPS, 7 doubles and 15RBI in 41GP at AA. Williams has developed in a decent AA 1st baseman but needs to show more pop if he hopes to continue advancing.

 

The Bo Bichette and Griffin Conine Show

 

Bo Bichette went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. Bichette is batting .312 with a .877OPS with the Herd.

 

Griffin Conine went 0-for-4 with 3 strikeouts. Conine is batting .324 with a OPS with the Lugnuts.
