  1. 2013 Rock Cats MVP: Josmil Pinto

    Rock Cats, Red Wings, and now Twins catcher,
    Josmil Pinto

    I think 4 games in a row constitutes a winning streak. If that's not the case, well too bad!

The Sunday Rock Cats-Fisher Cats matinee at New Hampshire was essentially a pitcher's duel for much of the game. New Britain starter Lucas French tossed 7 scoreless innings (92 pitches) for the Rock Cats, allowing only 2 hits, and walking
