News on Offense:

Jake Lowery blasted three homeruns this week, bringing his Captains season total to five in 20 games. To put this in perspective, he had two homeruns with the Carolina Mudcats in 59 games. Lowery might not be hitting for a high average (.217 for the season), but his power is starting to play up in the Midwest League.

Leonardo Castillo has eclipsed the Mendoza line! After this week, Castillo is hitting .210 and is starting to drive the ball. He had two doubles, two homeruns, and a triple this week.

Hitter of the Week: Jose Ramirez 

He is the spark plug to the lineup and had yet another solid week at the plate. Ramirez is batting .348 in 42 games with the Captains after a brief stint with the Scrappers to start his year. What is most impressive is that he is getting on-base via the walk and not striking out too much (17 walks to 20 strikeouts). His OBP is at .401 and has scored 32 runs.

News on Pitching:

 In his first game with the Captains, reliever Cody Penny picked up his first professional win. Penny was a 2012 16th round draft pick out of the University of North Carolina. He was with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers to start his professional career. Penny is currently 1-2 on the season with a 3.04 ERA in 23.2 innings pitched.

Enosil Tejeda has assumed the closers’ role since Jeff Johnson’s promotion to the Mudcats. Tejeda currently has a total of six saves (three with Mahoning Valley, three with the Captains). He is 2-1 with the Captains with a 2.08 ERA in nine appearances out of the bullpen.

Pitcher of the Week: Kyle Petter 

Petter struggled a bit last week, but righted the ship this week. He threw five and two-thirds innings of relief, only allowing one run. He struck out five and walked one.
