Week in Review- Vancouver Canadians (A)

Week of August 8th-14th

2nd Half Record: 7-14 4th and last place in the West Division, 7.0 games back of first

Overall Record: 31-28

Statistical Summary: The definition of a bad week to start “week in reviews” for any team was displayed this week by the Canadians. The C’s went 1-6 while only scoring 20 runs compared to their opponents 43, more than double the Canadians’ output. The pitchers combined ERA this week was 6.86, an amazing ERA, for a 5 year old, not for pitchers that are supposed to be future Major League Ballplayers.

Games Summary: On Sunday night the C’s won by a score of 7-3 to complete their 8 game road trip which took place in two cities, a three game set in Everett versus the Aquasox, and a five gamer in Yakima against the Bears. With that road stand in which they went 1-7 in over, the C’s dropped their overall road record to 12-18, compared to their 20-10 home record. If The Canadians want to make one final playoffs push then they need to do a better job winning games on the road, and there pitching and defense needs to improve, as those two things are the key components of winning and the C’s have been struggling with that.

Player of the Week- Nicholas Baligod #12 OF: 8-25, .320 AVG, 3 R, 1 2B, 5 BB, .433 OBP

Pitchers of the Week- Blake Mcfarland #26 RHP: 2 GS, 10 IP, 1-1, 11 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 0 HR, 1.30 WHIP, 4.50 ERA

Called Up: Noah Syndergard was called up to the Canadians from the Bluefield Blue Jays 3 weeks ago and has continued to pitch well so far in A ball. Syndergard has a 2.77 ERA in 3 starts so far with the Canadians, and will look to lower that tomorrow in Vancouver versus the Everett Aquasox.
