Purtlebaugh Slams 5 Hits for Round Rock: Some moments become linked with a particular player’s career forever. Andy Purtlebaugh of the Round Rock Express had one of those moments when he went 5-for-6 at the plate today in the 15-2 win over the Regina Red Sox at Dell Diamond.
“I won’t forget this anytime soon, and I don’t expect it to happen too often,” the 23-year-old center fielder told reporters in the postgame interview. “I’ll be happy to just get a hit or two every day. Enough to hang around the league a while longer. Like 10, maybe 15 more years.”
Andy Purtlebaugh singled in the 1st, singled in the 2nd, doubled in the 4th, singled in the 5th, singled in the 7th and flied out in the 8th.
