Buckeye Baseball News and Notes 8/3

A lot of summer league action to catch up on. From another Wolosiansky solid start to two Buckeye squaring off in Florida, here's the latest.


Hurley's Multi-hit Game Paces Buckeye Farmhands

Zach Hurley (06-10) appears to be adjusting to the professional game as he collected his second consecutive multi-hit game last night. As Vancouver defeated Everett 7-4 Hurley played a big role in the Canadians win going 2-for-4 with his first professional triple and three RBI.

Matt Angle (05-07) too collected a triple in Norfolk's 4-1 win over Indianapolis. Staying at AAA, fwllow outfielders JB Shuck (06-08) and Doug Deeds (00-02) each collected a hit in their four and five respective at-bats as Round Rock loss 5-1, while Reno won 4-1. None of the Buckeye hurlers pitched last night.

Current Players

Efficient Wolosiansky Dazzles Again

Buckeye baseball supporters need to find a way to bottle up Dean Wolosiansky and not open until the 2011 season kicks off. Though the senior right-handed pitcher received a no-decision in last nights 6-4 13 inning win against Lorain County Wolosiansky is not the one to blame. With seven innings of two-hit scoreless baseball, the veteran Buckeye lowered his ERA to a Prospect League best 1.19.

After needing 141 pitches to go eight innings in his previous start, just 83 were needed to go seven strong, 58 of which were strikes. With two walks and four strikeouts Monday night, for the summer Wolosiansky's numbers after nine games are: 5-1, 68 IP, 44 H, 54 SO, 25 BB, 1.01 WHIP.

Hutton Assists in Ending Mayfield's Summer

The Florida Collegiate Summer League is in its postseason, a playoff that saw two Buckeyes square off. In the best-of-three series between Orlando and Winter Park, Winter Park would take down Orlando 10-2 on Sunday and 8-2 last night as the Diamond Dogs advance to the league finals. Hunter Mayfield did not see playing time in game one of the series before going 0-2 with two walks in his season finale.

For the victors, Hutton collected his seventh home run of the summer in game one versus the Mavericks on Sunday in a 2-for-4, four RBI, two run effort with a walk, while playing first base. Last night as the team's DH Hutton went 0-for-5 with a run scored.


Matt Streng went 2-for-4 on Sunday in the regular season finale for the Delaware Cows, a 9-7 loss to Lima. Ryan Cypret went a combined 1-for-6 for Stark County in a doubleheader versus Cincinnati that resulted in a 2-0 loss and 8-7 win. Both teams will be participating in the GLSCL postseason which begins today in Cincinnati.

Sunday also saw Drew Rucinski pitch a scoreless inning of relief as Luray beat Woodstock 7-2. Brian DeLucia has gone 0-for-4 in action since Saturday. Brad Hallberg went 1-4 in 6-4 loss to Green Bay Monday night, the second game of a doubleheader, earlier Hallberg went 0-for-4 in 7-4 loss.

Hutton showing some power..that's good to see. At this point, i would be surprised if the '11 Bucks hit more than 30hr in the first 56 games.

I too am concerend about the power from what we return. Streng's 2009 season, and DeLucia are really the only glimpse of power that returns. I believe Hallberg has potential, but it has yet to show and his summer hasn't done anything to make you feel good.

Hutton will be key. Also like a lot what I'm hearing about Jacob Hayes. Sounds like he has a bat and speed that will make it hard to keep him out of the lineup.
