Roberto Gomez was named the Rays Minor League Pitcher of the Month in June. The Hot Rods were 6-0 when the young right-handed Gomez took the mound during the month. The 22- year-old Dominican was 5-0 in June with a 1.34 ERA. Gomez's success in June was no different from the rest of his season. He is 8-2 with a 2.90 ERA. Opponents are hitting just .253 off Gomez and he has fanned 57 while only walking 33. The Hot Rods and manager Brady Williams have been able to rely on Gomez this season when they need a well-pitched game.
Cameron Seitzer has been on a roll in the past ten games. Since July 3 he is 14-for-38 giving him a .368 batting average and three RBIs. The Hot Rods first baseman who bats from the left side, has vastly improved his average since the month of May when it was just .256 and he is now hitting .304. The son of former major leaguer and current Kansas City Royals hitting coach, Kevin Seitzer, Cameron shows off a solid line drive hitting swing. He is hitting .297/.379/.417 on the season with 26 doubles and 30 RBIs. Cameron's 30 RBIs are no surprise given his .364 AVG with runners in scoring position.
