Austin Barnes, C: 1-for-3, R, HR, 2 BB, SO

Brent Keys reached base three times, continuing his scorching hot week. Keys is batting .415 over the last 10 games. After missing the month of April, he doesn't have enough plate appearances to qualify for the Florida State League batting title. If he did, his .361 average would beat out Miguel Sano's, the current leader.
On the other hand, Anthony DeSclafani has collected enough innings to qualify for the league ERA title. His 1.32 ERA currently stands as the second best in the league.
