Upcoming Sounds vs I-Cubs series will likely be Gamel and Fox-free
What a difference a month makes!
Mat Gamel (left) and Jake Fox (right) faced off 30-April through 3-May at Greer Stadium in Nashville. Gamel was the Sounds starting 3B and Fox was Iowa’s starting 1B. Both have received recent call-ups to the Majors.
It is unlikely Minor League baseball fans will see these two rookie all-stars face one another at the Triple-A level again.
Jake Fox was recalled to the Chicago Cubs 5.27. Mat Gamel was called up to the Milwaukee Brewers on 5.14
What did each do in the late April-early May series in Nashville?
Jake Fox was 7-13, scored 7 runs, doubled twice, slugged 4 HRs, knocked in 6 runs, walked 4 times and struck out twice.
Mat Gamel was 6-15, scored three times, doubled once, hit 2 HRs, knocked in 4 runs, walked three times, and struck-out three times.
