California Collegiate League

Torin Montgomery-Healdsburg Prune Packers

Still a pretty middle-of-the-road for Montgomery thus far. He added 4 hits this week to bring his total to 11, but also struck out 4 times.

He may not be performing as well as some other Missouri guys at the plate, but a .250 batting average is nothing to be mad about.

Healdsburg has been near-perfect this year, leading the CCL at 12-2.

Cape Cod League

Hyannis field manager Gary Calhoun and his team listen to a song before a game with Cotuit this week. In nearly 40 years of coaching baseball, Calhoun has made a plethora of memories.

Luke Mann-Hyannis Harbor Hawks

Mann has hit a rut with Hyannis this so far. Through 29 at-bats he’s struck out 17 times, with only 4 hits.

Missouri baseball fans will be hoping he can find his swing before Spring.

The other two Tigers in Hyannis, Seth Halvorsen and Trae Robertson, haven’t pitched in quite some time. The Harbor Hawks are the worst team in the league by far this season, with a record of 2-11.

Spencer Miles-Wareham Gatemen

Miles finally got a fair shake in the Cape League over the past week, pitching 6 innings over multiple appearances.

While his 3.37 ERA isn’t the best on the squad, his 14 strikeouts certainly are. That’s right, Miles threw 10 strikeouts over 6 innings. Pretty nice stuff, and it’ll be even better if he can keep it up.

The Gatemen have been a middle-of-the-road team this year, sitting at 5-6-3 and third in the West Division

Coastal Plain League

Jacob Kush-Holly Springs Salamanders

Kush continues to be a strikeout machine, fanning 29 batters over 29.2 innings pitched. He has also only allowed 8 earned runs over those innings.

He is, without a doubt, the top arm for Holly Springs this summer, and Missouri fans will hope that he can be a top arm in the SEC next Spring.

Unfortunately for Kush, his record actually sits at 0-3 because of terrible run support. The Salamanders sit at 15-12, third place in the East Division

Ty Wilmsmeyer-High Point-Thomasville HiToms

Wilmsmeyer’s time on the mound has not been as successful as Kush. While he has managed 12 strikeouts over 12.1 innings pitched, he has also let 11 earned runs leak in that span.

Wilmsmeyer is able to get out via the strikeout, but he gets smashed in the process. If he can get guys to make worse contact, or less contact, maybe he can have a turnaround.

The Hi-Toms sit in second in the West Division, with a 17-11 record.
