Summer League Buckeyes: Stats through 8/7

Apologies for the two-week hiatus. Been a bit busy as the internship was winding down with the Settlers, camp and two-a-days have picked up as HS football is now underway, rink renovations at the ice rink, and needing a bit of break as baseball burn-out is setting in, as we're a month away from the start of fall ball. Yeah, the season just ended it feels and we're getting ready for 2010.
I'll have more things to pass along now that I have some free time, but to catch our Buckeyes finished, or are as the seasons across America in their respective summer leagues have completed except the CCBL playoffs where Wimmers might get one last start.
Bad news in the form of Best and Armstrong ending their summers early and have surgery on their pitching arms. Both should and hopefully will be 100% for 2010, but fall ball practice will be paper thin on pitching.
Good news, Wimmers continues to shine in the Cape, as too has Burkhart. Strayer finished with 2 solid outings in the Valley while Rucinski went on a second half tear down there finishing with very impressive numbers. Engle, DeLucia, and Kovanda performed very well across the board showing the Bucks infield will be loaded with depth as they defend their championship.
