In yesterday’s 6-5 loss to Gwinnett, Gregory Polanco continued his incredible season, collecting three hits, including the double in the video below. Polanco has proven he can hit in any situation. He has a .396 average vs right-handed pitchers and the same .396 mark in road games. He’s hitting .373 against lefties and .380 at home. With runners on base, he is hitting .455, but if you put those runners in scoring position, his average goes up to .490…yes, .490!
Polanco leads the International League in runs, hits, triples, RBIs, total bases, batting average, OBP, slugging percentage and of course, OPS. His OPS is .116 higher than second place in the league. That difference is bigger than the difference between 2nd and 14th place. Basically, he is good. The video below shows off that sweet left-handed swing that will be coming to Pittsburgh in about three weeks.
Stetson Allie hit his eighth homer of the season on Saturday. He has played 18 home games and 18 road games this year, but this homer was his seventh at home. His only road homer came Tuesday in Binghamton. Allie has a five game hitting streak going and he has reached base in seven straight.
