Hitter and Pitcher of the Day, Saturday July 6

The storms in the Valley have been something to behold the last few days. Sunny, hot, then clouds roll in and a storm is unleashed. Then it gets sunny again, just to repeat the process.

Anyway, two games were postponed last night, while three somehow escaped the raindrops.
