Player of the Day – Alex Guerrero

First, a few notes on the Quakes’ game. Corey Seager fell a triple short of the cycle and has been on fire since coming off the DL. But that wasn’t the most exciting thing to happen in the game. After leading 7-1 after four innings, Lancaster began chipping away at the lead until finally catching Rancho in the 8th and taking a one run lead. The Quakes responded in the bottom of the inning, plating the tying run on a double from James Baldwin. The score remained tied through regulation and into the 10th, when the Quakes came up to bat in the bottom half of the frame. Leo Rodriguez led off with an infield single that was thrown away, allowing him to reach second base. James Baldwin came up in a sacrifice situation, bunting to the catcher. However, his speed allowed him to beat the throw and he was safe at first. As Rodriguez took third, he realized no one was covering home, sprinted toward the plate and scored the game-winning run. Easily one of the most bizarre endings to a game I’ve ever heard of.

Now, onto Guerrero. Alex has homered five times in his last four games. He’s raised his OPS to 1.094 overall and 1.167 in the month of May. It’s not a surprise that, as a 27-year-old, he’s dominating AAA. However, there’s not much left for him in the minors. If Dee Gordon begins to falter, don’t be surprised if Guerrero makes his way to the big club.
