David Cooper and New Hampshire Beat Trenton


1B David Cooper (.267) has a lot to prove this season after a lackluster 2009 season. His performance on Tuesday was the best of this season as he finished the day 4 for 5 with 2 doubles. SS Jonathan Diaz (.286) chipped in with a 3 for 5 day and 3 RBIs, and newly acquired and promoted 3B Shawn Bowman (.400) had 2 hits of his own with a double.

The win didn’t go to Zach Stewart, but just like Chad Jenkins in LoA Lansing he was very dominant on the day.

5 IP/ 1 Hit/ 0 BB/ 5 Ks

His line above lowered his ERA to 5.02 on the year, a clear indication of just how badly Zach needed this kind of start. Bubbie Buzachero tried to throw his hard work away by committing an error and allowing 3 runs to score (if the pitcher commits the error, shouldn’t it still count as an earned run for him? Because it didn’t in this case). Thankfully, Adrian Martin (2.1 shutout innings), Tim Collins (winner), and Daniel Farquhar (5th save), all shut the door and earned NH the win.

New Hampshire leads their division with an 11-7 record, 1 game ahead of Portland (BOS).
