Storm Week #6 review 5/14/11- 5/20/11
The Storm breaks out with a four game sweep of Inland Empire, after losing 2 of 3 to the Lancaster Jet Hawks, to put a punctuation mark on their sixth week of play. The bats really came alive against the 66ers with 3B/DH Jedd Gyorko catching fire to burn up the scoreboard for a collective 15/30 with 11 runs scored, 3 2B, a 3B, 4 HR, 11 RBI with 3 BB and 4 SO for the week!
This barrage paced the Storm to a 5-2 record and a collective 17-25 for the season, holding them in 4th place and nine games back of Rancho Cucamonga. Gyorko did get some help with strong hitting from teammates Eddie Rincon and Nate Freiman but most of the heavy lifting was done by Gyorko.
OF Danny Payne came off the DL and upped his average from .238 to .273 with at least one hit in each game he played. OF Wande Olabisi has also helped his cause with an increase from .231 to .296 over the week.
The consistent output of CF Rey Fuentes should not go unnoticed.
