Kingston 9, Princeton 4. Tim Beckham went 0-5 with 2 strike outs.
NOTES FROM DOWN ON THE FARM…
- Rocco Baldelli is starting to “let it go” in his rehab and maybe closer to returning than any of us know…In addition to going 3-4 with a home run, he was clocked at 4.19 seconds from home to first…4.2 seconds for a right-handed batter is considered very good…In addition, he will play 5 innings in the outfield today. [St. Pete Times]
- Ryan Royster is hitting .340 since the all-star break. He attributes it to regaining muscle mass and weight he took off this past off-season in an effort to get into better shape. [TCPalm]
