POTD News: Trade Deadline
Saturday, July 31st, 2060
The pressure is on in Pioneers of the Diamond for clubs looking to make a trade as today is the last day of trading in the league. General managers still seeking to make a trade deal will have to arrange a suitable proposal quickly if they wish to have the deal accepted before the deadline officially expires. Past this date, players can only be traded if they have cleared waivers. Normal trades are allowed again once the playoffs are over and the offseason begins.
Gómez Bangs Out 5 Base Hits
Friday, July 30th, 2060
Emílio Gómez did a number on the Crop Circles in the Vermont 10-7 victory today, and the number was 5. The Lake Monsters right fielder banged out 5 hits in 5 at-bats at Welsh Field to lead his club past the Iowa Crop Circles.

"I felt good in the batter's box today," he said later. "I had confidence in my swing and knew that it was there and that I could get the job done."

Emílio Gómez hit a solo-shot off Juan Vargas in the 1st, doubled in the 3rd, hit a three-run home run off Juan Vargas in the 5th, hit a two-run double in the 6th and hit an RBI single in the 8th.

So far this season Gómez is hitting .318 with 28 home runs.

Jones Strokes 5 Hits
Thursday, July 29th, 2060
St. Paul Bearers second baseman Jake Jones really lit up the Newark Falcons with a 5-hit barrage today at Falcons Field -- a performance that sparked the Bearers to a 9-6 triumph.

He shrugged off the performance after the game, saying "sometimes the ball finds outfielders, today the ball found some holes."

Jake Jones singled in the 2nd, singled in the 4th, doubled in the 6th, singled in the 7th, walked in the 9th and hit a two-run single in the 10th.

So far this season Jones has 7 home runs and a .272 batting average.
