Obviously a win’s a win, we’ll take it, but we’re looking at the big picture here, catcher Kurt Suzuki said. Your best player goes down, gets hit in kind of a freak spot you’re just kind of hoping for the best.
When the best hitter in the game goes out and he’s on our team, it really sucks, said Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz, who got the win Wednesday.
Freeman leads the National League in home runs (14) and his slash line (.341/.461/.748) puts him among the league leaders in all three categories.
Three things to know about Claire Eccles: She’s lefthanded, she’s a knuckleballer and this isn’t weird that she’ll be the first female to compete in a summer baseball league that regularly attracts some of the best college players in North America.
Eccles, 19, will pitch for the Victoria (B.C.) HarbourCats of the West Coast League, the team announced, becoming the first female to compete in the 11-team league that plays a 54-game season in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia starting May 30.
100 percent Claire is good enough to play on our team, HarbourCats GM Brad Norris-Jones said (via the CBC). Is it going to be a challenge for Claire? Absolutely.
We’re just going to get everyone involved and show that in 2017, this isn’t different. This isn’t weird. It’s normal.
