News & Notes
Last Time Out: SP Aaron Slegers was stellar for the Lookouts and the offense backed him up with 6 runs to secure a 6-2 victory and even the series at 2-2. Slegers went 7 innings, allowing just 2 runs on 4 hits and a walk, while striking out 3. Alex Wimmers and JT Chargois allowed just one hit between the two of them over the last inning to close out the game. 1B DJ Hicks and DH Joe Maloney were the big bats for Chattanooga, as Hicks went 3-for-5 and drove in his 9th RBI, and Maloney went 2-for-3 with 2 walks and his first southern league HR.
Rally Runs pt. III: Another game, another set of late inning runs as Chattanooga’s offense continued to do much of its scoring towards the end of the game. The 3 runs (one each in the 7th, 8th and 9th) were the 26th , 27th and 28th runs this year scored in the seventh inning or later by Chattanooga, which accounts for 46% of the teams scoring on the season (28 7th or later/61 total).
Serious Wheels: In one game, OF Zack Granite doubled his count of stolen bases, as Granite swiped 4 bags yesterday, giving him 8 this year (tied for 2nd in the Southern League). Granite fell just two short of the Southern League record of 6 SB in a game, set by Alexis Marte with Orlando in June of 1986.
Lights Out: Bullpen Arms Alex Wimmers and JT Chargois shutdown any hopes the Braves had for a comeback with two shutout innings. Wimmers needed just 9 pitches to get through the 8th inning, allowing just one hit and striking out a batter. Chargois continued what has been a phenomenal start to the season, finishing his fifth game of the season while still having yet to allow a base runner and striking out another 2 batters swinging (9 Ks in 5IP).
A Little Rest Does Us Good: Joe Maloney had a rough start to the season, but after 2 days off, Maloney is 3-6 with 3 runs, 2 RBI, 3 walks, and his 1st Southern League homerun over his last two starts.
