Two of the Perfect Game All-Americans on the Orlando Scorpions/Mets Scout Team roster for the weekend, Brendan Rodgers (2015, Longwood, Fla.) and Kep Brown (2015, Mount Pleasant, S.C.), both showed off their hitting ability and collected hard base hits to the opposite field Thursday night. Rodgers dug in for his third at-bat facing a mid-to-upper 80s righthander who was working the outside corner with his fastball that showed tail coming back over. Rather than trying to pull the pitch, the Florida State commit extended his arms and put the barrel to the ball for a hard line drive single. Brown, who put on a mini show during batting practice earlier in the day as detailed above, drove the ball to the opposite field like Rodgers, though Brown’s was for a standup double to the right-center field gap and came off the barrel at 96 mph.
Prayers for Zach Jancarski! Keep him in your thoughts and shoot him a text if you get a chance! This season is for you #25!!!
