Game 30 – Kannapolis @ West Virginia – 7:05 pm
Recapping Yesterday…Terry Doyle struck out
a season-high 14 batters but took the loss as he allowed a solo home run in the
4th inning, which was enough for victory for the Power as they added
another run late and won 2-0.
3-2-2…Through their first seven
four-game series the Intimidators have won three, tied two and won two.
Power Surge…Through their first
eight games this season, the Intimidators had just one home run. However, over
the past 21 games, the Intimidators have hit 19 home runs, four by Trayce
Thompson and five by Ian Gac. Thirteen of the home runs are solo shots.
Gac Attack…First-baseman Ian Gac
hit a home run to dead center field at State Mutual Stadium, 401 feet to the
wall and a 25 foot wall. He is one of three players in the seven-year history
of the stadium to do so. He also hit a home run over the wall to dead center at
Applebee’s Park, 401 to the wall and a 16 foot wall, the longest home run at
that stadium this season by 31 feet. He now has a league-leading 19 extra base
