Lima Time!!!: Woke up really early to see him, so if he doesn’t suck today, I’d really appreciate it. But I’m covering Jose Lima’s start for Camden here in Somerset. I’ll a little write-up on it tonight or tomorrow…
Olivares: H over SS
Larson: 2B to LCF — 2 RBI, Larson out at third
Chiaravalloti: 2B CF — RBI
Kotch: 3R-HR RF
Ayala: H INF
Smith: 2B RF
Larson: 2B LF LINE – RBI
Chiaravalloti: H LF -RBI
Lima Time = Over
Ashby Approaching Record (TIED?): York’s Chris Ashby is approaching Joe Jiannetti’s Atlantic League record 28-game hitting streak.
Ashby’s streak, now at 27 games, started on July 12th. He’s hitting .464 over that stretch. He’s also hit in 21 straight games at Sovereign Bank Stadium.
According to a post in the comments by…uhhh, I’m assuming someone under the employ of the Revolution, Jiannetti’s streak was at 27, not 28. So Ashby has apparently tied it.
B. Nasty In The L.A. Times: Somerset alum Brandon Knight was featured in this Los Angeles Times article.
Trujillo Update: Just to clarify what’s going on regarding why Newark’s J.J. Trujillo retired, the newly married big leaguer is hoping to become a teacher in Texas, and the school year starts in a few weeks.
I was just trying to point out what my last memory of him would be…but just to clarify what’s actually going on, there you go. – MA
Poll Results: I find this poll kind of interesting because most teams say they are all about family/fun entertainment more than the product on the field. It seems as if most fans want to watch what’s on the field though. The question was: Why do you go to Atlantic League games?
