Rankin Homers Twice For GCL Jays; Snow Still Streakin'
Former Husky catcher Pierce Rankin, who signed with the Toronto Blue Jays after last season, hit his first two minor league homers in a Gulf Coast League game Monday.
Rankin belted two homers while going 3-for-4 with three RBI for the GCL Blue Jays in a 9-1 win over the Pirates.
Those two homers moved him into a tie for the team lead, and he also shares the lead with nine RBI through Tuesday's play.
Closer to Seattle, another former Husky has continued a terrific streak to begin his pro career. Forrest Snow, playing for the Everett Aquasox, the Mariners affiliate in the Northwest League, has yet to allow a run in seven outings and 15.1 innings of pro ball this summer.
Yesterday, Snow threw three scoreless innings at Yakima. He's now allowed just four hits and walked only four while striking out 16 this summer.
