May 7, 2010: LugNuggets

Think I enjoy having free time before a game?  Most definitely!

Next items on my agenda:  Getting all the pre-game interviews posted online and updating the highlight soundbytes page on the Lugnuts' website.  We'll see how long it takes me to get everything updated.

Here are today's LugNuggets:
  • Chad Jenkins is making his 6th start this season tonight, his 3rd against Fort Wayne.  Against everyone else in the MWL, he's 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA.  Unfortunately, he's 0-2 with a 5.91 ERA vs. the TinCaps.
  • Jenkins has whiffed 29 batters this year.  27 of those are swinging strikeouts.
  • Brad Glenn has reached base in all 21 games he's played this year.
  • Kenny Wilson may have missed every game in the month of May thus far, but he's still leading the Midwest League with six times hit-by-pitch.
  • Matt Wright faced 12 batters in the South Bend series.  He retired them all.
  • The Lugnuts hitters lead the Midwest League in batting average, at-bats, base hits, doubles, and stolen bases.  The Lugnuts pitchers lead the MWL in fewest walks issued.
  • Yesterday was the first day since April 29 in which the Lugnuts did not steal a base and was the first game since April 22 in which the Nuts did not attempt a steal.
