Palm Beach Cardinals Notebook – 2019 Week 15

The Beach Birds posted a 3-4 record this week due to solid hitting and poor pitching. Nolan Gorman led the way with 11 hits (6 for extra bases) and a .379 batting average – a much-anticipated breakout week for the 19-year-old in his first taste of the Florida State League. On the pitching side, Patrick Dayton proved to be invaluable as he helped solidify a leaky bullpen and secure all three wins.

Justin Toerner and Jose Martinez carried the offense while the bullpen did not give up an earned run all week.
