By Carl Vagle
Chattanooga Lookouts (Double-A, 2-5)
The Lookouts had a tough week only getting two wins but had a few bright spots. They had series against the Birmingham Barons and the Biloxi Shuckers. Randy LeBlanc and Nick Gordon highlight the Lookouts this week.
Nick Gordon – The Lookouts struggled to score runs this week but Gordon led the team with five runs, three doubles, two triples and one home run. He also stole a base and had three RBIs from the lead-off spot. Nick is the Twins shortstop of the future.
Randy LeBlanc – LeBlanc led the Lookouts to their first win last week pitching six innings while scattering seven hits and giving up zero runs. This was a bright spot for Randy this season as his ERA is still 4.50 after getting called up to Double-A earlier this season.
Edgar Corcino – He led the Lookouts with seven hits and a .368 (7/19) average. Corcino also had five RBIs and raised his season average to .307.
Nik Turley – Turley earned a call-up to Rochester last week but not before putting on a show out of the bullpen for Chattanooga. In four innings of work he had nine strikeouts while allowing just one hit and no runs. He also lowered his ERA to 0.37.
