(GAME DATE — July 18, 2020) — Nevada first baseman Jim Lahey pounded a home run during the Speeders 14-5 loss to Ohio yesterday. Despite the defeat, the long ball was a significant achievement and raised his career home run total to 200.
“Some hitters never live up to the hype,” said his manager. “Jim has definitely lived up to his. He’s hammered the heck out of the ball year after year.”
The Nevada star, who is in his 3rd year with the club, went 3 hits for 4 at-bats during the game, scoring 1 run and had 3 RBI.
Lahey led the league in homers last season with 64, and also drove in 158 runs. He is on pace for another 60 or more homers this year. Among his long balls this year, he also has two Grand Slams, bringing his career total to seven.
