AFL Stars of the Day

We’ve got some new action on Twitter, folks:

Twins 1B Chris Parmelee — @CParmeleeAFL

Go and follow him, please. More to come in the coming days…

Going to be brief today and get right to the Stars O’ the Day

Hitter

Andrew Lambo
, OF, Javelinas (Dodgers): This was a tough call since there were fouLambo.jpgr different hitters on Tuesday to collect four hits. All of them — Bryan Petersen and Starlin Castro atop the Mesa lineup, Carlos Rivero for the Saguaros and Lambo’s teammate Jonathan Lucroy — deserve some credit. Lucroy was a perfect 4-for-4 with a home run in the Javs’ crazy 14-10 victory over the Solar Sox. I decided to give the nod to Lambo for his 3-for-6 effort, his 4 RBIs and his three runs scored. Lambo’s grand slam in the fifth was part of a massive eight-run inning for Peoria that put the club up 11-6. Lambo, coming off a so-so year in Double-A in which he hit .256 with 11 HR and a .717 OPS, has started his AFL campaign by going 11-for-23 with a 1.452 OPS (2 HR, 5 total XBH). He’s fourth in OPS and tied for second in RBIs

Pitcher

Braddock.jpgZach Braddock, LHP, Javelinas (Brewers): In a 14-10 game, any pitcher who gets people out deserves an award. Braddock did let an inherited runner to score when he entered in the seventh and allowed a single to Ryan Kalish. That would be the only hit he’d allow in his two innings of work, pitching out of a one-out bases-loaded jam in the seventh and retiring the side in order in the eighth. He didn’t walk a batter and he struck out three. Coming off a year in which he relieved full time for the first time and posted a 1.79 ERA and .193 batting average against, the lefty has made three scoreless appearances this fall, totalling 3 2/3 IP.
