Well, no use messing around. Let’s get to the good stuff. This happened!

Which was pretty Shawsome! Now because I like to be fair and balanced, I feel duty bound to note that this also happened:

which was a little less shawsome. That was the pitcher hitting so it’s possible that that ball didn’t come off the bat with the normal action of a left-hander. Also possible it just surprised Shaw. But it’s always worth remembering that he’s still working on his all around game. That’s why they call it development.

[I sort of feel like I'm betraying my BC brethren with that clip. Sorry, Chris! I meant well. Keep on working!]

That play made the difference in the 2-1 game, driving in the Cubs’ tying run and putting the go ahead on 3b with one out. Jemile Weeks would drive it in a couple pitches later with a Sac Fly. That was also the third consecutive game in this series in which the Cubs starting pitcher had an RBI hit.

Shaw not only hit his 20th HR of the year, he drew his first walk in the month of July. Shaw had a walk rate over 10% in Richmond this year, and mastering the strike zone anew with each increased level of pitching competition is a big part of the story for him. He now has four HRs and four doubles in August, so identifying pitches to attack is coming along nicely.

Cory Taylor miraculously survived walking the bases loaded in the 2nd inning, but when he allowed four consecutive batters to reach base in the 3rd, including two more walks, his night came to an end. Other than a rain affected game in April, it was his shortest start of the year, though it was the fourth time he’s failed to make it as far as four innings. Controlling the strike zone has been a real issue this year for Taylor. He has the second most walks in the Eastern league with 53 BBs in 103 IP. And unlike a lot of wild child pitchers, Taylor’s 86 Ks don’t suggest he has the stuff to tap dance through that level of control.

Seth Rosin allowed both of his inherited runners to score, and the four-run 3rd inning held up for the only runs of the game. Richmond managed eight hits, including two doubles, and included two walks. But they spread them all out as far apart as possible as if they were trying to dry their runners rather than score them, ending with just five at bats with runners in scoring position.

Given the sweep at home, this article would seem to be pretty timely.
