Milwaukee Brewers: Biloxi Shuckers Week 18 – Nottingham Starts a Hitting Streak
The Biloxi Shuckers only had 2-4 this past week, but Jacob Nottingham started a hitting streak including a game winner.
Jacob Nottingham’s start to the season was a little off as he struggled to get his AVG over .200, but by the start of June had it near .250. Like many of the offensive players on the Shuckers, there hasn’t been much to cheer about as they’ve been in a decline in the 2nd half.
While the season is close to being done near the first week of September, Nottingham and company still have time to get hitting streaks going to make their overall season stats look solid. While not everything is going to be perfect for the catcher with a 29.5 K% and 83 wRC+, it’s all part of the learning curve.
During the trade deadline, the Milwaukee Brewers added C Andrew Susac, so Nottingham the catcher position is a bit deeper and he’s not so much of a rush to get through the system. While his numbers haven’t been the best, any time a game winner happens like in the Shuckers 4-3 win, it can always build encouragement.
So, let’s take a look at how the rest of the hitters and pitchers did throughout this past week. Going 2-4, they fall back 11.5 games from the top spot held by the Mississippi Braves, the Atlanta Braves AA affiliate.
