AA – Eastern League
The interesting thing here isn’t the scoreboard, but the resucitation of 1B Nick Evans. Evans was 2-4 with a double, his third game in four outings with an extra base hit and is now hitting .304/.371/.500 in 14 June games for the B-Mets after hitting .200/.273/.325 in nine May games.
LF Lucas Duda (.276/.389/.396 – pictured) was 2-2 with a double. More remarkably, he initiated a double steal with a delayed attempt towards second, that allowed Evans to swipe home.
C Josh Thole (.346/.416/.455 overall) was 1-4. After hitting .369/.440/.490 through the end of May, he’s returned to Earth with a .278/.344/.352 June.
Eric Brown (4-5, 4.81) gave up three runs on nine hits in seven innings. He fanned six and walked one.
