OF Kevin Kaczmarski 3-10, 2 R, BB, 5 K

To show how great an AFL season Kaczmarski has had, his cooling off a bit meant he hit .300 for the week.  Overall, he has continued to find his way on base and try to make a difference in each of the games he has appeared.  He is now hitting .358/.411/.448.  His batting average is fourth best in the league.  He also had a terrific play in the field:

3B David Thompson 2-6, 3B, RBI, 2 BB, K

Thompson has continued to accumulate the extra-base hits with a triple over the past week.  He’s now hitting .314/.364/.549.  His slugging is sixth best in the league and third among third baseman.

MI Luis Guillorme 2-8, 2B, RBI, 2 BB

Just like the regular season, Guillorme finds a way to get on base and make terrific plays in the field.  On the season, Guillorme is now hitting .310/.356/.381.

C Tomas Nido 2-7, RBI, 2 K

This was one of Nido’s better weeks at the plate.  With his hit on Monday, he snapped an 0-14 streak. After breaking that hitless streak, he is now hitting .184/.250/.327.

RHP Mickey Jannis L, GS, 5.0 IP, 3 R, 3 ER, 9 H BB, 5 K

After being perhaps the most dominant starter in the AFL, Jannis had a relatively rough start in his only start of the week.  Even with a down game for his recent lofty standards, he now 1-2 with a 1.64 ERA, 0.955 WHIP, and a 7.8 K/9.  His ERA is second among starters.

LHP Kyle Regnault G, 2.0 IP, H, BB, K

Regnault has continued his three appearance and six inning scoreless streak.  In addition to his impressive stats, which include a 0.77 ERA, 0.943 WHIP, and a 11.6 K/9, he has a 15:3 K/BB ratio.

RHP Matt Pobereyko G, 2.0 IP, 2 H, 2 K

Pobereyko has yet to allow a run in AFL play, which makes him just one of five pitchers to accomplish that feat this season.  In addition to keeping runs off the board, he’s keeping runners off the bases pitching to a 0.750 WHIP, 11.0 K/9, and limiting batters to a .189 batting average.  Like Regnault, he posts an impressive K/BB ratio with Pobereyko amassing a 13:1 ratio.

RHP Tim Peterson G, 2.0 IP, H, R, 0 ER, K

Peterson was the only Mets reliever to allow a run this week, but his was unearned which is why he’s now lowered his ERA to 0.96.  He pairs that impressive ERA with a 0.750 WHIP.
