THE NEWBERG REPORT — JULY 6, 2007
Twenty-five straight games in which Bakersfield third baseman Chris Davis (.301/.342/.576) has hit safely. He has multiple hits in six of his last nine.
Eighteen straight for Oklahoma left fielder-DH Jason Botts, including home runs in four of his last six games (and extra-base hits in five of six). In the last week he’s raised his OPS from .917 to .986. His batting average (.324) reached its season high last night, as did his on-base percentage (.431). His slug (.556) was at its high point a night earlier.
Five-game hit streak for Frisco right fielder John Mayberry Jr., raising his line from .229/.327/.417 to a very healthy .303/.387/.545 in 66 AA at-bats.
Three straight days of home games unaffected by the rain.
Hoping to keep everything intact today. See you at the yard.
