Bad Boys 1-3-1 all-time vs Grizz. Run differential in those 5 meetings- Grizz 32, Bad Boys 31. Two one run losses vs the Grizz this year.
In the last 6 games Brian Airey is 4 for 10 with 8 walks, 2 hit by pitch(.700 OB% and 1.100 OPS), 3 stolen bases, and 6 runs scored.
Zack Larson is 4 for his last 12 with an on base percentage of .500. He's also accumulated 3 stolen bases and 2 RBI's in that time.
Russell Breedlove got healthy against the Black Sox in a big way. Before meeting the new team, the Glove Muscle was hitting just .105(2-19). From July 18th on he's been a machine. Russ is 9 for his last 16, for an average of .563, and an OPS of 1.213. He has 8 runs scored in those 5 games and even a stolen base. Now it seems that anything he gives you defensively is a bonus.
Since starting the season 0 for his first 3, Danny Clemans has put on an offensive display. DC is currently on a 7 game hitting streak in which he's hitting .417(10-24) with 3 doubles, a triple, and 9 RBI's. In those 7 games he has an OB% of .517 and a slugging percentage of .625 for a 1.142 OPS.
The global warming trend continues. Josh Hoke started the season 3-14(.214). Where his offense faded last year, it has burned white hot this year. Since the middle of the Bombers game hoke has been en fuego. He's hitting .391 since that point and has an on-base percentage of .548. Also, in those 8 games he has 5 RBI's, 7 stolen bases and 7 runs scored.
The Bad Boys face the Cascades on Wednesday. Once again it's a chance to move into an 8th place tie for the Orange Hats. Bad Boys have never beat the Cascades, and have been outscored 54-28 in the 4 games.
