Stubblefield’s Success, Up In a Helicopter, Mother’s Day Threads

If you were out at Parkview Field on Saturday night, you witnessed quite a showing from the TinCaps. 12 runs on 15 hits and two home runs mixed in made for a good recipe in a 12-4 win over the West Michigan Whitecaps in the opener of a four-game series.

Duanel Jones hit his first home run of the season and Tyler Stubblefield hit his first as a member of the TinCaps. Despite playing here last year for 42 games, the infielder didn’t go deep. He’d hit one home run earlier this year with Advanced-A Lake Elsinore, but before that his only home run was with the Eugene Emeralds on June 19th, 2010. Clark Murphy also knocked in three, which were his first runs batted in of the year.

Cody Hebner didn’t have his sharpest stuff on Saturday, but still worked through five innings to get the win and improve to 4-1. He has received a staggering amount of run support this year. In his last start, the TinCaps scored 11 runs, and his season average of runs scored per game when he starts is now 8.1. For reference, the next closest in that category is Adys Portillo at four runs per game.

Here’s a peek at the special jerseys the TinCaps will wear today. This is Corey Adamson’s #25:

In today’s TinCaps Report Podcast, hear how a meeting with TinCaps hitting coach Jacque Jones and Padres minor league hitting coordinator Sean Berry helped Tyler Stubblefield have a big day:

GAME. SET. COOKIE.

Has anyone ever had a Milano cookie and thought, “You know what, one was enough. I would not like to eat another…or the rest of the bag here in one sitting.” The answer to that is certainly not.

Please excuse me while I run to the nearest confectionery…
