Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Vinny Capra.

 

The former 2018 20th round selection played LF and batted 6th for New Hampshire. From day 1, Vinny Capra’s been swinging a hot bat. He batted .300 in May and over .400 in June, entering July with a .375BA. Normally an infielder, Vinny has seen time in LF this season with Austin Martin, Jordan Groshans, Otto Lopez, Samad Taylor on the squad and rated higher on the depth charts.

 

Capra picked up his first hit of the game with a double in the 5th to put the Fisher Cats on the board, 6-1. The Melbourne, FL. native stole 3rd but Chris Bec grounded into a double play to end the threat.

 

In the 6th inning with two out and two on, Vinny Capra tripled to LF scoring Samad Taylor and Groshans, 6-4. Kevin Vicuna popped out to end the threat, leaving Capra stranded at 3rd base for the second inning in a row.

 

 

For the season, Vinny Capra is batting .379 with a 1.094OPS, 7 doubles, 2 triples, 4HR, and 20RBI. Vinny has struck out 30 times with 10 walks and 3SB in 29 games.

 

 

The Groshans and Martin Show

 

Jordan Groshans played 3rd and batted 4th. Jordan went 0-for-3 with a run scored and a strikeout. Groshan owns a .255BA with a .745OPS, 8 doubles, 5HR, and 23RBI.

 

Austin Martin manned SS and batted 2nd for the Fisher Cats. Martin went hitless in 3 at-bats. Austin Martin is batting .272 with a .780OPS.
