After losing 2-of-3 at Dayton, the Bees head to Ft. Wayne Monday to start a 3-game series with the Wizards. We return home Thursday to start a 4-game series with Beloit.
Make sure to head over to gobees.com to vote for The Drake Player of the Month for April. The three players to choose from are (stats through April 28th):
Adrian Ortiz, #6, Outfield
.361 Average, 35 Hits, 9 Runs, 4 RBI, 9 Stolen Bases in 23 games played.
Ortiz has been the leader at the plate for the Bees. He’s done exactly what a leadoff hitter is supposed to do; get on base for the middle of the lineup.
Edward Cegarra, #31, RHP
1-1 with 1 save, 1.93 ERA, 28 Strikeouts in 28.0 innings pitched.
Cegarra has pitched very well for the Bees, both as a starter and reliever. He looks to be a key part of the rotation the rest of the year.
Anthony Bradley, #34, LHP
1-2, 0.56 ERA, 12 Strikeouts in 16.0 innings pitched.
Even though he has two losses, Bradley has pitched very well out of the bullpen so far. He should help the Bees close out games.
