Big Day with Bat: Crowell 5-for-5
Thursday, July 20th, 2028
It was high-fives all around for John Crowell at Memorial Stadium today.
He got them from his teammates and he got them at the plate during an outstanding hitting performance against the Cedar City Rockets. Crowell smashed 5 hits in 5 at-bats on his monster day, leading his club to a 9-2 win.
"John was hitting everything," said Hawks manager John Caldwell. "It really was a special game for him."
In the opposing dugout, Rockets manager Donte Castillo told BNN beat writers that Crowell "ambushed" the club.
"Obviously we didn't have much success against him, but we'll have another chance," he said. "Hopefully, Crowell oversleeps next time."
John Crowell singled in the 1st, tripled in the 4th, hit a solo-shot off Asa Merritts in the 5th, hit a three-run double in the 6th and singled in the 8th.
This season Crowell has hit at a .269 clip and produced 39 runs batted in, 4 home runs and 48 runs.
