Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Vinny Capra.

 

Vinny continues to swing a hot bat in his breakout season. He played 3rd base and batted 3rd for the Fisher Cats. The 25-yr-old infielder singled in the 1st inning but did not score. He struck out to end the 3rd inning. With 2-outs and Tanner Kirwer at 2nd base, Vinny Capra hit an RBI singled to CF, 1-2.

 

In the 7th inning, Capra put Fisher Cats on the corners with a single with one out. Jordan Groshans hit into a fielder’s choice and Kevin Vicuna lined out to end the inning. New Hampshire scored 5 runs in the 8th, Capra contributed with a 2-run single, scoring Reggie Pruitt and Chavez Young.

 

Capra finished with 4 singles in 5 at-bats, 3RBI, and a run scored. In 45 games with the Fisher Cats, Vinny Capra owns a .381BA with 11 doubles, 4 triples, 6HR, and 37RBI.

 

The Smith and Martinez Show

 

Kevin Smith wasn’t in Buffalo’s lineup today. The 25-yr-old Smith owns a .293BA with a .973OPS. He’s collected 21 doubles, 3 triples, and 18HR while scoring 48 runs and driving 54. Kevin has also stolen 14 bases and 3CS.

 

Orelvis Martinez batted 3rd and manned SS for the Vancouver Canadians. Martinez went 1-for-4, picking up his 2nd hit with the C’s in the 1st inning. Martinez jumped on the first pitch of the at-bat, sending it over the fence in LF for his 2nd HR as a member of the Vancouver Canadians. It was the only run the C’s would score in the game.

 

The 19-yr-old has just two hits in his first 3 games since his promotion but they are both HR. Martinez owns a .167BA with a .833OPS while driving in 3RBI.
