Martinez and Gronkiewicz Brawl, League Suspends Them
Saturday, June 23rd, 2018
After an intense confrontation, both the RubberDucks Jorge Martinez and the Senators Jack Gronkiewicz were handed their punishments today. The league commissioner's office issued suspensions for an on-the-field conflict that occurred at a recent Akron-Harrisburg game. Both players will miss 4 games as a result of their actions.

"Sometimes we go too far and have to pay the consequences," Jorge Martinez commented later. "Hopefully cooler heads will prevail the next time we play."

Martinez is hitting .240 so far this season with 14 RBIs and 18 runs scored. He has 46 hits including 3 home runs, 7 walks and .274 OBP.

In the current season in 18 starts, Jack Gronkiewicz has a record of 0-8 with 44 strikeouts in 71.1 innings and a 7.44 ERA.

Friday, June 22nd, 2018
Carlos Reyes really sizzled at the plate in today's 10-1 win over Thunder. The Reading second baseman blistered Trenton for 5 hits in 5 at-bats.

"Reyes was too tough to get out today," the Thunder skipper said in the postgame interview. "No matter what we threw him, he hit it. And he hit some good pitches, too."

Carlos Reyes singled in the 3rd, hit an RBI double in the 4th, hit a three-run home run off Dwight Hendrickson in the 5th, doubled in the 7th and singled in the 9th.

Reyes is hitting .317 so far this season with 12 RBIs and 15 runs scored. He has 51 hits including 3 home runs, 7 walks and .362 OBP.
