West Virginia Bats Get Shutdown; Von Rosenberg Not As Good As Stat Line

The West Virginia Power lost game two of their three game series with the Lakewood Blueclaws by a 2-0 score, one day after throwing their own shutout. Zack Von Rosenberg pitched the first six innings, giving up one run and taking the tough loss. He was followed by Ryan Hafner and Porfirio Lopez for one inning apiece. As usual with the West Virginia game reports, I’ll concentrate on the big four in the lineup and then add some...

Three Hit Night For Alen Hanson; Hafner Touches 94 MPH

On a night where I got to see Ryan Hafner pitch for the first time, the good news was seeing Alen Hanson play for the fourth time. In last night’s game he was hit in the head with an errant pick-off throw, which caused him to leave the game. He was back in the lineup tonight, although he was at DH for the night. He did take infield practice earlier in the day so he seems to be fine after a scary looking incident. The Power ended...

Hanson Leaves Game With Injury; Good Start From Rowland

The big news of the West Virginia/Lakewood game tonight was when Alen Hanson got hit in the helmet with a pick-off attempt in the sixth inning as he slid headfirst back into second base.
