Notes on Offense:
The Captains were almost no-hit again this month. This time, the Captains managed to get one hit versus Quad Cities Friday evening. They lost the game 3-1. Nick Bartolone scored the only run (which was unearned) versus River Bandits starter Trevor Rosenthal.
Lake County was also one-hit in a rain-shortend, six inning game on Saturday night. Jordan Casas tallied the lone hit for the Captains.
Brian Heere's 18 game on-base streak was snapped on Friday night versus Quad Cities.
The Captains lost one of their best hitters in Jesus Aguilar. Aguilar was promoted after Wednesday's game to Kinston. His promotion was well deserved after hitting .292 with 19 homeruns and 69 RBI. The question is... who (or whom) is going to step up and be the Captains power hitter for the remainder of the season?
