Hit Parade: Altagracia Pops 5 Hits
Thursday, July 16th, 2043
Rhinos catcher José Altagracia had his way with Fort Knox pitching today at Ballpark of Baxter and mauled them for 5 hits in 5 at-bats. His efforts were all in vain, though, as the Centennial ruined his great day by toppling the Rhinos, 8-5.
"I had a great day, but you've got to give Fort Knox credit, they did what they had to do to win," he told reporters after the game. "They weren't very impressed with my 5 hits."
"Oh, we noticed what Altagracia did today," Centennial skipper Justin Saginov said. "He had quite a game. I can tell you this, we will pitch him a little differently the next time we face him."
José Altagracia singled in the 2nd, singled in the 4th, doubled in the 6th, singled in the 8th and hit an RBI single in the 9th.
This year Altagracia has hit at a .257 clip with 17 RBIs, no home runs and 13 runs scored.
