Benjamin Turner went yard four times. Yeah, it wasn’t even with the wind blowing out each time. We can’t explain it either. He earns his second nomination.
Longtime veteran Patrick Browning came out of retirement and flew in as a guest player and ended up picking up his third nomination. The first was in the 2008, the second was in 2011. Browning hit three bombs, maybe had a 4th blocked by an umpire and drove in five runs.
Matt Gagnon picked up a keychain during his rookie campaign last season, but it became clear soon after that his teammates were the real stars on this team. Gagnon gets his second nomination with an automatic nod by tossing a perfect game. He also gave up just one hit, a controversial hit, which Gagnon has obviously challenged, in his second game of the day.
Michael Burns gets his fourth nomination and his second this season and rookie Michael Cohen earns his first to round out the top five.
