Atlanta Prospects Stay Hot in Arizona

Well another start for Tommy Hanson and another win.
Hanson went strong for 5 shutout innings on Monday only allowing 2 walks and 1 hit while striking out 10. This has been amazing partly because almost everyone has over a .300 average in the league. Hanson now leads the league in Wins (5) ERA (0.63) and Strikeouts (49) and that would be all triple crown stats. Congrats Tommy.
Flowers is also on fire and has homered in 3 straight games and hit his league leading 12th on Monday as well. He went 3-4 with a homer, 3 runs, 3 RBIs, and a walk. He has a .394 average.
Matt Young went 1-5 with 2 runs, a walk, and a strikeout. He is hitting .363.
Van Pope showed that he could replace Chipper if he retires soon by going 3-3 with a Grand Slam, 4 RBIs, 1 run, and 2 walks. He is hitting .286.

    My awards predictions didn’t turn out half bad. I’ll hang my hat on getting the winner’s right and leave the runner’s up out next time maybe. Not a bad turn in by the prospects in the AFL. Hopefully Chipper doesn’t have to retire anytime soon though. Van Pope doesn’t exactly inspire me.
