BIERMAN ADDS CAN-AM PITCHER OF THE MONTH TO RESUME
Won five games in July for Boulders

Sean Bierman’s first year in a Rockland Boulders uniform is drawing considerable attention. Already a two-time Can-Am League Pitcher of the Week and member of the American Association South All-Star team, Bierman (pictured) has been named the Can-Am League Rawlings Pitcher of the Month for the month of July. The Kinnelon, New Jersey resident made six appearances this month for Rockland, five of them as starts. He went an impressive 5-1 over the month, lowering his ERA to 2.10.

BOUCHER NAMED CAN-AM PLAYER OF THE MONTH
Leads Can-Am League in batting at .389

What does a month in which you hit .386 earn you? The answer is the Can-Am League Player of the Month award. OF Sebastien Boucher (pictured) of the Quebec Capitales leads the Can-Am League in batting average at .389, and now can check Player of the Month off his list.

Boucher collected 14 multi-hit games during the month. His best performance came on July 15, when he was 5-for-5 with four RBI in game one of a doubleheader against the Amarillo Sox.

SEVEN-RUN SIXTH INNING PROPELS AIGLES TO WIN
Top of the order leads offensive charge

Trois-Rivieres used a seven-run sixth inning to comeback from a 4-2 deficit and beat Quebec by a 10-5 final. Four players in the Aigles lineup had multi-hit games with the most damage coming from the top of the order. The 1-2-3 hitters of 3B Eric Grabe, 2B Jose Cuevas (pictured) and DH Michael Hernandez combined to go 7-for-15 at the plate with four runs scored and five RBI. Cuevas also chipped in with his eighth home run of the season.

In the other league contest, New Jersey defeated Rockland, 6-3.

HECTIC EIGHT-HOUR DRIVE, THEN A NO-HITTER

A left-handed pitcher with a great story is Alex Szymanski (pictured), who threw a seven-inning no-hitter in his first start for the Can-Am League's second year Trois-Rivieres (Canada) Aigles. No-hitters always are fascinating, but it is the back story on the 27-year-old from Londonderry, NH that could keep Hollywood script writers busy for some time.

Szymanski had made only one previous start since undergoing Tommy John elbow surgery exactly two years ago today until he shut down the New Jersey Jackals in the second game of a doubleheader at Yogi Berra Stadium.

PEREZ SHINES IN CAPITALES 5-2 WIN
Leondy Perez threw eight shutout innings.

Quebec’s starting pitcher Leondy Perez (pictured) set the tone for the Capitales with a strong outing that helped down the Trois-Rivieres Aigles 5-2.

Perez tossed eight shutout innings and allowed just four hits while striking out nine batters. The win gives Perez four on the year. The run support came in the fourth inning when 1B Rene Leveret hit a solo home run to put the Capitales up 1-0. Quebec doubled their lead in the fifth when DH Sebastien Boucher singled home SS Jonathan Malo. Boucher, along with Leveret and 2B Mike Provencher, registered two hits in the game.

JACKALS TOP BOULDERS IN MATINEE
Dunigan drives in all three runs

The Jackals withstood a late Boulder rally and won on Wednesday afternoon. RF Felix Sanchez led off the bottom of the first with a double and scored on a sacrifice fly by DH Joe Dunigan (pictured) later in the frame. Dunigan followed that up with a two-run home run in the fourth inning.

Rockland CF Antone DeJesus hit a two-RBI single in the eighth, but two men were left on.
