You know what I mean. The kid is a very advanced hitter, at a position where that's very rare.
Oh yeah, no question about that. Lots of batters (majors and minors) profess to understand how important OBP is, but Norris walks the walk I AM A COMIC GENIUS
Kimball starts off the bottom of the eighth with an HBP.
Not an auspicious day for Harper at the plate... 0-4, 0 BB, 2 SO, 1 popout, 1 groundout. He swung--and fouled--that second-to-last pitch that was literally at his feet. I guess it's impressive that he has the bat speed to foul it back but that shows pretty atrocious strike zone recognition. Maybe the opposing pitcher was really nasty though.
Yup... Mesa holds on, Scorpions lose 6-7.
