Pitchers Rank Tops in the League
The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks have a combined team ERA of 3.27, which is best in the American Association. This in part can be attributed to three starters ranked in the top 10 in the league for ERA. Jake Laber (6th), Taylor Stanton (7th) and Alex Caldera (9th) each have sub-3.00 ERA’s and have a combined 15-8 record during the 2013 season.
Four is the Magic Number
The number four has been prevalent in some big performances at the plate recently. C.J. Retherford and Buddy Sosnoskie both came up big at opportune times in the four-game series at Lincoln. On July 2, the game was tied at 2-2 before a two-run home run by Retherford eventually helped push the ‘Hawks ahead in an 11-2 victory. Retherford finished with 4 RBIs in the game. Sosnoskie would come in the clutch on July 4, picking up four hits in an 8-4 defeat of the ‘Dogs. Sosnoskie also had three RBIs and three runs scored in the game.
Hitters’ Dream in June
Ron Bourquin and Keith Brachold had impressive June’s at the plate for the RedHawks. Bourquin led the club hitting .365 (35-for-96) with five home runs, 22 RBIs, seven doubles and 21 runs. Brachold provided the power with a team-high seven home runs, while hitting .340 (36-for-106) with eight doubles, 20 RBIs and 25 runs scored. Each player has also played in every game for the ‘Hawks this season.
Harris Clutch From the Bullpen
RedHawks reliever Joe Harris is having another outstanding season out of the bullpen. Pitchinhg in 23 games this -- one back of a league-high for appearances -- Harris continues to be tough to hit. The lefty leads the club with a 1.78 ERA and has four wins. This season, left-handed batters are hitting .179, while righties are hitting .150 off Harris.
