Former Stanford baseball stars continue to make a splash in professional play.
Boston Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie has fit back into the Red Sox roster nicely after missing considerable time due to injury and illness. While a huge asset to the Sox defensively, Lowrie has also helped out offensively, with 10 hits in his last 10 games.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder John Mayberry has been called up to the majors to help Philadelphia in their playoff push. Mayberry was hitting .261 with 12 home runs for the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs.
Baltimore Orioles right hander Jeremy Guthrie has won two consecutive starts. In his Aug. 3 performance against the Angels, Guthrie went seven innings and gave up only five hits and three earned runs. On Aug. 8 against the White Sox, Gunthrie went a whole eight innings giving up only one earned run and striking out four.
Arizona Diamondbacks catcher John Hester has been called back up to the majors. In his first game back with the Diamondbacks, Hester went two-for-three with a home run.
Washington Nationals reliever Drew Storen has been a solid addition to the Nationals' bullpen posting a 2.75 ERA. In his last 10 appearances, Storen has given up only four runs in 10.1 innings. His most impressive performance was a two inning outing against Philadelphia, in which he gave up no hits, no runs, and struck out two.
Columbus Clippers second baseman Cord Phelps has had a great offensive season for the Clippers. Batting .355 with four home runs, Phelps' best performance as of late was a three-for-three one with a home run and stolen base against Buffalo. On Aug. 4, Phelps went three-for-five with two doubles and an RBI.
Memphis Redbirds center fielder James Rapoport is batting .264 with 25 RBI in 86 games for the Redbirds. In a recently impressive Aug. 5 game, Rapoport went three-for-five with a double and an RBI.
Binghampton Mets center fielder Sean Ratliff is batting an impressive .327 with 12 home runs and 39 RBI. In a recent performance, Ratliff went two-for-four with a double, a home run, and two RBI.
