AA Hartford Yard Goats (13-21, Fifth in Eastern League – Eastern)

Struggling to keep the season afloat, Hartford managed a .500 record over the last seven days. The best individual performance of the week came on the back of pitcher Jack Wynkoop. The lefty tossed eight shutout innings allowing just three hits in a 3-1 victory last Friday.

The Yard Goats managed to score just 17 runs in a 3-3 week. Coming off of a month where he was named Double-A Player of the Month, Ryan McMahon has cooled off a little. In his last 10 contests, McMahon is 10-for-36 (.278 AVG) with one homer and three RBI.

It should be noted that pitcher Yency Almonte remains on the DL for Hartford. For a more detailed reading on Hartford, here is a great article by the Hartford Courant. The article offers great insight into how Double-A differs from life in the lower leagues. Mainly, the article speaks of how hitters and pitchers alike approach making adjustments in their game.
