Notes :


Catcher Ryan Leitch was activated prior to the game, he was signed as an un-drafted free agent from Marshall University this July after the draft.  He’s got a prototype short throw from behind the ear, a big arm, above-average pop times behind the plate - we saw glimpses of that in drills at the Complex last week and he showed it today in the third inning as he gunned down a would be base stealer at second base to end the inning !  Leitch is from Whitby, Ontario, Canada.
