Storm Week #9 review 6/4/11- 6/10/11
Lake Elsinore Storm 3B/DH Jedd Gyorko continues to rack up the impressive numbers and is selected as the Storm representative to the Cal League All Star Game. He leads the league with 62 RBI while adding 29 2B and 11 SB to his impressive season stats. Continuing to make his case for a June call-up to the AA San Antonio Missions, Gyorko is making it difficult for Padres brass as the Missions regular 3B is James Darnell, also not a slouch in the numbers department, with almost 50 RBI and a batting average at .350 or above.
Fellow 3B/DH Eddie Rincon had a 11/24 week, increasing his average to .350 with 11 runs scored, a double, 2 HR, and 12 RBI to equal 42 for the season.
Gyorko ended the week at .375 with 10 runs scored, 4 2B, 7 RBI, 2 HR with a 13/30.
1B Nate Freiman also continued to be productive with an 11/29 and 10 RBI to increase his total to 54 RBI for the year.
All of this hitting only accomplished a 3-3 record for the week due to the difficulties of the pitching staff. Starters Mike Watt and Jerry Sullivan struggled in their outings while reliever Robert Lara increases his ERA from 10.00 to 16.20.
Jose DePaula had a good start with 7 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, HR to earn his fourth win but only lower his ERA to 6.02.
Closer Miles Mikolas lowered his ERA from 1.48 to 1.35 with 3.1 IP and 2 H with no runs allowed in three appearances.
