Mobile BayBears, AA

The BayBears did something this week that not many teams at any level get to do: 8 games in 7 days. In those eight games, they went 3-5. The biggest news coming out of Mobile is the second career cycle of Zack Borenstein. Borenstein did it this time and added a walk for good measure.

The top full week performance would have to go to Alex Glenn though as he went 10-26 while hitting his fifth triple of the year.

Braden Shipley did not fare too well in a no decision during the 8-5 loss to the Mississippi Braves Wednesday. He struggled through five innings giving up five hits, four walks and five runs (three ER).

Aaron Blair on the other hand had a solid week with a 14:1 K:BB ratio over 13.2 IP in his two games. He was unlucky on Tuesday getting the loss in a 2-1 game.
