Lookouts Game Notes 4/25/16

Three players fell just one hit away from the cycle yesterday, including the Barons’ Nicky Delmonico (missed by a HR), and the Lookouts Travis Harrison and Daniel Palka (both a 3B short). Palka hit a line drive off the wall in his last chance at the feat but had to settle for his second double of the day.

Lookouts Game Notes 4-25-16

News & Notes

Last Time Out: The warm weather brought out the best in both teams’ offenses yesterday as the Lookouts dropped a 14-13 afternoon affair to the Barons. SP David Hurlbut lasted 4 innings and allowed 6 runs on 8 hits before the bullpen took over.  All four relievers for the Lookouts also gave up runs including the first allowed of the season by JT Chargois. Even on a day with 17 hits as a team, Travis Harrison and Daniel Palka’s offensive performances were the clear stand outs. Harrison finished 3-5 with a HR and a 2B, while Palka was 4-4 with a HR and 2-2Bs while reaching base twice more by way of a pair of walks. The pair combined for 5 runs scored and 6 driven in.

Cycle Watch: Three players fell just one hit away from the cycle yesterday, including the Barons’ Nicky Delmonico (missed by a HR), and the Lookouts Travis Harrison and Daniel Palka (both a 3B short). Palka hit a line drive off the wall in his last chance at the feat but had to settle for his second double of the day.  

Hit Parade: Every offensive starter in the game for both teams had a hit yesterday, while 13 different players had an RBI, capped by 4 driven in each for Daniel Palka and the Barons’ Eddy Alvarez.

Nobody’s Perfect: JT Chargois’ dominant start to the season of not allowing a base runner came to an end at 15 batters, when Keenyn Walker led off the ninth with a 2B for Birmingham. The closer is still allowing just a .105 batting average against and remains perfect in save opportunities for his career (22/22).

Heating Up: After starting the season 4-for-25 (.160) through the first seven games, Levi Michael has since gone 12-30 (.400) with 6BBs through the next 10. Over the 10-game stretch Michael has reached base in every game and raised his OBP from .192 to .400 and his average from .160 to .291.
