The Kannapolis Intimidators had a big April and head into May with a 14-9 record.
In the final installment of a four-game homestand against Lake County (9-13), the Intimidators have carried the series thus far, 3 games to 1. Shortstop Eduardo Escobar made a two-run RBI in the second inning to help the I’s take the win, 5-4. This came after a stunning 8-4 loss to Lake County, where the I’s gave up hits in the loss.
But the I’s are near the top of the South Atlantic League standings, tied with Lexington with a record of 14-9, and on a one-game streak.
Pitcher Greg Infante is having a stellar season, with an ERA of 1.52, while catcher John Curtis is leading the team in hitting with a .326 average.
The Intimidators go on a four-game road series against Lakewood, then one more game at Lake County, before returning to the Cannon for a four-game homestand against Lakewood starting May 14.
