Short-Season Wednesday: Nimmo Doubles Again. Akeel Morris Takes It on the Chin

SSA: Brooklyn Cyclones 7, @ Hudson Valley Renegades 3 

We will start at the end, where, with a two run lead and two men aboard in the ninth, Brandon Nimmo doubled to left-center. Then, Little League style, he came home on a throwing error on the Renegades shortstop. After a rough first 10 games, he’s up to .296/.393/.493 in his last 19 contests.

DH Kevin Plawecki, this year’s supplemental first-rounder put together his first career three-hit game, going 3-for-3 with a double and a walk. Plawecki is hitting .221/.354/.324 in 19 games, but he’s the third-toughest player in the New York-Penn League to strikeout (7.3% K/PA).


R: Bristol White Sox 10, @ Kingsport Mets 7

Ouch, Akeel Morris: 2.1 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 1 HR, 2 HBP.
