Hitter of the Day

Drew Avans SE LA 2016An easy call from last night- Strasburg’s Drew Avans, from Southeastern Louisiana, is the only player with more than 2 hits- and he had 4! Drew went 4-4, with 2 runs, an RBI, a walk, and 2 doubles. Drew is now hitting 222/295/250 in 36 at-bats for the Express. He’s pulling double duty, though, as he’s also thrown 11 innings from the mound (where else?!). He’s 1-0, 0.81, with 13 strikeouts in those 11 innings.

Others of Note

Tripp Shelton, Harrisonburg: 2-3, run, BB, 2B (I feel like Tripp is on this list every day- he’s been an “other” three days in a row)
Kevin Bryant, Woodstock: 2-4, 2B, SB
Nick Ward, Woodstock: 2-4, run, RBI, HR
Donovan May, Strasburg: 1-2, 3 runs, RBI, 2 BB
Erick Delgado, Strasburg: 1-3, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, 2 BB, HR, SB
Trevor Jensen, Winchester: 2-5, 2B, 3B

Pitcher of the Day

FOUR starters finished with game scores over 70 last night, but no one was as high as Alex London, Purcellville’s Alex London Miss St 2016starter, from Mississippi State. Alex scored a 78, as he threw 7 shutout, one-hit innings against Front Royal, allowing only 3 walks, and striking out 6. He also was given the win. Alex is 1-1, 3.60 in 5 starts this summer so far.
