CF Brandon Nimmo (.214/.374/.333 – 24 games) collected his first three-hit game of the year in a 3-for-4 effort.
Nimmo wasn’t the only one with hits Friday. The Cyclones bus was nailed by a semi on the road. True story. As reliever Tyler Vandenheiden put it on Twitter: “There are no easy roads to the show. Sometimes a semi truck and guardrail get in the way.”
And they kept waiting: Rob Whalen: “2 hours later… We are still sitting here on the side of the road.

The infield at Hunter Wright Stadium was unplayable after heavy rains Friday, and all week. I was there. It looked close to playable, but very soft. They were an hour of sunlight or two away from gametime.
As of Wednesday, I expected to catch Steven Matz and Akeel Morris this weekend. Now, since the K-Mets haven’t played a game since Monday, I’ll miss both. On the plus side, I hear positive things about both that we’ll get into more detail with next week.
