Prospect of the Week

C Richard Paz: 3-7, 3B, 3 RBI, 2 BB, 2 K – .429/.556/.714

Paz had a great week at the plate and was one of the few Hillcats to have a productive week offensively. He showed patience at the plate drawing two walks in his seven at bats. Paz has not the best year at the plate but this week was solid.

Who’s Hot

P Ryan Webb: 4.0 IP, 7 K, 2 BB

Webb has been hot and cold in his performances this year. This week he brought it as he struck out seven in four innings of work. He is expected to start game three of the first round if necessary but if this was Webb’s final start of the year he finished the year with this stat line: 50.2 IP, 68 K, 30 BB, 3.91 ERA

P Trenton Denholm: 7.0 IP, 5 K, BB

Denholm had his start skipped in the rotation last week likely to prepare him to be the game one starter for Lynchburg. He had an impressive start going seven innings and striking out five. The two runs scored while he was in the game were unearned.

Who’s Not

1B Will Bartlett: 0-7, BB, 5K – .000/.125/.00

Bartlett had a rough week at the plate only reaching base. In order to avoid elimination the Hillcats will need Bartlett to bounce back on Thursday.

2B Jake Fox: 1-14, RBI, BB, 3 K, 2 SB – .071/.133/.071

Fox brought a run across but didn’t provide much else offensively. He did record two stolen bases but will be another Hillcat that will need to set up in order to avoid elimination.
