Hit Streak Over, Trappers Stop Morris
Saturday, May 13th, 2051
After 27 games, Dax Morris had his hitting streak ended abruptly today by the Vancouver Trappers at Salem Stadium. The Salem Cherries shortstop failed to get a hit in 2 at-bats, bringing his tenure in the national spotlight to a halt.

Despite the tough day at the plate, Morris seemed unconcerned after the game, talking instead about the Cherries taking a 2-1 victory from the Trappers.

"It was good while it lasted," Morris said. "If it had to end, I'm glad it ended with a victory."

This year Morris has hit at a .430 clip with 12 RBIs, 3 home runs and 16 runs scored.
Big Day with Bat: Valentine 5-for-6
Saturday, May 13th, 2051
No matter what the Philadelphia Stars threw at him today, Zak Valentine hit it. He easily handled Stars pitching, going 5 for 6 and helping the Pride to a 12-9 triumph at Stars Park.

"The way I was swinging today, I think I could have closed my eyes and hit the ball," he told BNN reporters in the postgame interview.

Told of Valentine's quip, Stars skipper said he "would take him up on that next time."

Zak Valentine hit an RBI double in the 1st, doubled in the 3rd, struck out in the 4th, hit an RBI single in the 6th, hit an RBI double in the 7th and singled in the 9th.

For the season, Valentine is hitting at a .333 clip with 4 home runs, 22 RBIs and has scored 21 runs. He has 34 hits, 13 walks and a .405 on-base percentage.
