Ethan Hearn and Jordan Nwogu are continuing their (possible) 2nd half breakouts.

Nwogu hit his 6th HR in a 5-run 2nd inning. That's his 4th HR in his last 14 games. After OPSing below .500 in the first 2 months of the season (28 games), he's OPSing over .850 in July (19 games).

Hearn has 2 HRs so far tonight bringing his season total to 4, 3 of which have come in the last 4 games. Like Nwogu, Hearn OPSd below .500 in May and June (28 games) and has broken out in July (12 games) slashing .265/.350/.471 heading into tonight in which he's thus far 2-for-2 with 2 dongs.

Here's hoping their play in July thus far isn't an aberration and they're actually beginning to fulfill their potential...

^^ Yeah, Hearn's been hitting alot better lately. I like how his season's in general. LHH C likely to stick at the position is a good start so he's got alot of breathing room as a prospect IMO



A couple SBs too

Myrtle Beach hitting coach Dan Puente said that no Pelican has developed more as a hitter this year than Jordan Nwogu. All I know is the guy looks the part. His athleticism and frame already resemble that of a major leaguer. Power and speed are evident, and it seems the swing is coming along.

Howard ended up 3/5 with a double. Nwogu had a triple to go with that homer. Aliendo had a double and 3 walks. And as mentioned above, Hearn hit 2 home runs.

Brennen Davis got himself a golden sombrero. Cam Sanders had 10 K in 5 innings but gave up 3 runs.

Ben Leeper gave up a run (walk-off home run) to the only batter he faced.

Cristian Hernández went 1/2 with a single and another walk (6 BB in 28 PA).
