More Homers and All Stars

Starting a big series with the Braves in Pearl tonight, or trying to, waiting out a rain delay as I write this.  Going into this series, the Shuckers lead Mississippi in the Southern League South Division by 4 1/2 games, so if we can take this series, it would really put us in the drivers seat for winning the first half.  Our magic number stands at 6, if I’ve got that figured correctly.  I actually tried to come up with an excuse to go up to Jackson this weekend, to my old hometown, so I could catch a game.

We won Tuesday night’s game with a huge help from back-to-back home runs by Taylor Green and Tyrone Taylor. Mr. Taylor went yard again in Wednesday’s loss, and you just get the sense that finally getting a home stadium and crowd has really helped him find the power he’s always been touted to have.  We won the series against the BayBears, our fifth in a row.

In addition to the eight Shuckers announced yesterday, the League today added two more Biloxi players to the All Star team:

  • Adam Weisenburger C – Has caught a league-leading 47% of base stealers this season.
  • Jorge Lopez P – 3-2, 3.38 ERA, and 51 strikeouts in 50 2/3 innings pitched

The All Star game will be played June 23 in Montgomery.

And this guy has had a good week too:
