Alen Hanson hit his league-leading seventh triple on Friday night, driving in his 35th run of the season. He’s showing some power this year, with ten doubles and six homers, to go along with all those triples. Hanson has also been clutch with runners in scoring position, hitting .365 in 52 at-bats. He has hits in all nine June games Altoona has played, leading to a .342/.375/.500 slash line this month.
Nick Kingham made his AAA debut last night and he was spectacular. He went seven shutout innings, allowing five hits and a walk, while picking up eight strikeouts. Shown below is his last strikeout of the game, getting the awkward swing from Justin Christian, who has played parts of three seasons in the Majors.
