| || Red-Hot Palmer Scorches RoughRiders |
Friday, August 16th, 2019
Hooks left fielder Mike Palmer had his way with Frisco pitching today at Dr Pepper Ballpark and mauled them for 5 hits in 5 at-bats. His efforts were all in vain, though, as the RoughRiders ruined his great day by toppling the Hooks, 9-8.
"I had a great day, but you've got to give Frisco credit, they did what they had to do to win," he told reporters after the game. "They weren't very impressed with my 5 hits."
"Oh, we noticed what Palmer did today," RoughRiders skipper Pat Miller said. "He had quite a game. I can tell you this, we will pitch him a little differently the next time we face him."
Mike Palmer singled in the 1st, tripled in the 3rd, singled in the 5th, singled in the 7th and singled in the 8th.
Palmer is hitting .269 so far this season with 54 RBIs and 74 runs scored. He has 130 hits including 18 home runs, 43 walks and .335 OBP.
