Overall, it appears the pitchers had slightly better summers than the hitters, but that isn't a huge surprise, hitters have to adjust to the wooden bat and pitchers just go pitch.
Cape Cod League
Josh Cribb – Brewster Whitecaps
Josh started off very well, but struggled some late in the season. He finished with a 3-4 record in 9 games, all of them starts, after beginning the season 3-0. He pitched one complete game and one shutout (the same game and it was his first appearance of the season). He pitched 49 innings and finished with a 4.59 ERA. He gave up 28 runs (25 of them earned), walked 22 and struck out 47.
Travis Storrer – Chatham A's
Travis played in 40 games and had 36 hits in 151 at bats, an average of .238. He hit 7 doubles, no triples or homers, and drove in 18. He walked 14 times and struck out 44.
Drew Fiorenza – Hyannis Mets
Drew pitched in 11 games, all in relief. He had a 1-3 record and pitched 14.2 innings in the 11 games. He gave up 7 runs, 4 of them earned, for an ERA of 2.45. However, he walked 19 and struck out only 12.
Robert Rohrbaugh – Orleans Cardinals
Robert pitched very well, but had little run support this summer. He appeared in 7 games, starting 6, but only had a 1-4 record. He did his job, as he pitched 40.0 innings and gave up 13 runs, only 10 of them earned. He walked 10 and struck out 35.
Coastal Plain League
Doug Hogan – Florence RedWolves
Doug had a pretty good summer overall; however, going 0-12 at the plate in the Petit Cup Tournament hurt his batting average. For the summer, he appeared in 46 games, starting all of them. He had 42 hits in 167 at bats, for an average of .251. He hit 7 doubles, no triples and 4 home runs, accounting for 32 RBI. He walked 16 times and struck out 42.

As a hitter, Tyler appeared in 32 games, starting 29. He had 20 hits in 104 at bats, an average of .192. He hit 5 doubles, no triples or homers, and drove in 8 runs. He walked 10 times and struck out 14. He also made two appearances on the mound (both in relief) and pitched 1.1 innings. He gave up no runs, earned or unearned, so his ERA (obviously) was 0.00. He didn't walk anybody and struck out 1.
Daniel Pritchard – Florence RedWolves
Daniel had a pretty nice summer. He appeared in 34 games, making 31 starts and collected 18 hits in 102 at bats for an average of .176. He showed some power as he hit 3 doubles, no triples, but homered twice, accounting for 10 RBI. He walked 14 times and struck out 28.

Tanner Leggett – Spartanburg Stingers

He collected 15 hits in 74 at bats, for a batting average of .203. He hit one double, no triples or homers and drove in 6. He walked 11 times and struck out 25.

Chris Howard – Vermont Mountaineers
Chris also redshirted last season at Clemson, so this summer was his first game action in over a year. He saw rather limited time on the mound, but did a pretty nice job when he got the chance. He appeared in 12 games, all in relief, and pitched 24 innings, giving up 11 runs, 8 of them earned, for an ERA of 3.00. He walked 9 and struck out 16.
