The Falmouth Commodores had four players selected to the West Division All-Star team, Tuesday afternoon. The club had second baseman Brayden Taylor, outfielder Jace Bohrofen and pitchers Chase Jeter and Lucas Gordon receive recognition for their accomplishments through the first half of the season.
Bohrofen has been one of the Commodores’ biggest offensive contributors thus far, logging a .304 batting average with five home runs and 16 RBIs. The newly committed Arkansas Razorback has also shown great patience at the plate, walking 12 times and registering a .412 on-base percentage.
Taylor has been a rock in Falmouth’s lineup through his first 21 games, posting a .293 batting average, two home runs and 14 RBIs. The TCU product has also demonstrated his ability to get on base, drawing 13 walks and recording a .396 on-base percentage. Taylor said that he is grateful to receive this recognition from the league.
“I just think it’s a really awesome honor to be amongst those group of guys,” Taylor said.
On the mound, Jeter has been a reliable arm out of the bullpen. The Sacred Heart product has impressed through his first six appearances, as he has notched a 2.93 ERA with 15 strikeouts in 15.1 innings of work.
Gordon was also named to this year’s All-Star squad, in recognition of his dominance in his first three outings in relief. In six innings of work, he has posted a 1.50 ERA, while fanning six batters. The Texas Longhorn has also recorded a save this summer, closing the Commodores’ 1-0 victory over the Orleans Firebirds on July 12.
Assistant coach Ryan Ihle said that he is pleased to see each of the players receive recognition for their efforts.
“They absolutely deserve that,” Ihle said. “Jace has been one of the best extra-base hit guys in the league, and Brayden just been an all-around solid player for us…And with regards to Lucas and Jeter, they’ve been both really, really big left-handed pitchers for us and gave us some really good innings. So, those are all well-deserved accolades for those guys.”
