RE: UNCW Baseball - 2017 Thread
Imwalle has continued his hot streak with Shelter Island, and has now collected at least one hit in 8 of his last 9 games. He's only had 14 hits in total on the season, but 12 of them have been collected in that 9-game span.

This is a great sign for the next 2-3 years at 1B. After Corey Dick graduated, it left a void at that spot in the infield, but if Imwalle becomes a capable D-I caliber hitter, that would mean we would have guys hitting from both sides available (Canada is a right-handed batter, Imwalle hits left-handed). Imwalle also looks the part of a 1B, at 6-4, 245 lbs., and has flashed the leather (.984 fielding % and 8 assists) as well.

Connelly is another option as well, but I imagine the preference would be for him to handle 3B duties, with Daniel Stack DH-ing. Scalf has a lot of options available, it would seem.

An additional note: It looks like Canada has primarily been playing 3B for the Upper Valley Nighthawks in the NECBL. He's also listed as "3B/LF" on their roster page. It probably means that Upper Valley needed him to play 3B/LF more than it says anything about Coach Scalf's future plans, but it's also nice to know he can play multiple positions.

Jeez. Imwalle came off the bench and hit a HR last night for Shelter Island. Hot streak continues.

Nick Feight, less surprisingly, is on a bit of a tear himself. Currently on a 6-game hitting streak that has included 2 HR and three multi-hit games. Nice job by Feight to have success with the wooden bats and potentially improve his draft stock for next June.

* Zack Canada hit his first HR of the Summer for the Upper Valley Nighthawks, a 2-run bomb in a 9-2 victory over Winnipesaukee. He's hitting .241 (20-83) with 6 RBI in the NECBL.

* Nick Stuart also had a big night for the Fuquay Varina Twins in the Carolina-Virginia league. In an 8-5 loss to North Wake, he went 2-4 with a double and 3 RBI. He's now hitting .286 (14-49) with 11 RBI.

Junior righty Justin Crump, who has mostly had a disappointing summer pitching in the Valley League for the New Market Rebels (Virginia), has strung together a few nice performances of late to drop his ERA to 5.88. In his last 6 appearances out of the bullpen, he's pitched a total of 10.0 innings and has only allowed 1 earned run.

Last night, in a 17-2 win over Front Royal, Crump tossed the final 2 innings, striking out 2 and only allowing 1 baserunner.

* In the Cape Cod League, Nick Feight had a big night, going 3-5 with a double and 2 runs scored in a Harwich 10-0 win over Austin Magestro's team, Chatham. Magestro did not appear in the contest, with his last outing coming on Jul 10th. Feight is now hitting .278 (20-72) with 3 HR, 9 RBI and 11 Runs for the Mariners, who are now 23-13 this Summer.

* Meanwhile, for the Sharks, Feight's current backup catcher Ryan Jeffers, who started hot (.278, 5-18 with 7 RBI in his first 6 games) but has been mired in nearly a Summer-long slump ever since (.153, 8-52 with 6 RBI in his last 16 games played), finally contributed with a late RBI single in a 3-1 win over Fayetteville last night. The Sharks are now 29-17 overall, winners of 6 of their last 7, and have the 2nd best record in the CPL. But Jeffers, whose average sits at .186 on the season, hasn't been a big reason for that, unfortunately. Arkansas catcher Grant Koch (hitting .221 with 4 HR, 19 RBI) has started 33 games this year, nearly all of them behind the plate, and thrown out 19 runners, relegating Jeffers to backup catcher duties or the DH role this Summer.

Told that Jeffers has been seeing a ton of breaking stuff and has really struggled. He does throw the ball very well and could end up as a pitcher.

C Ryan Jeffers had a monster night for the Sharks last night. In a 6-5 loss to Forest City, Jeffers went 4-4 with a HR, a pair of doubles and 2 RBI. He was a triple away from hitting for the cycle. Jeffers slugged 2.250 on the evening, raising his season Slugging % to .436, tied for 3rd on the Sharks. Jeffers also lifted his batting average from .203 to .244 (19-78).
