Player of the day
Over the last two weeks, it has been difficult not to pick a different Quake as the player of the day because the team has been playing so well. And that did not change on Tuesday night, with several good performances, it was hard to pick one but for this entry, it will be outfielder Logan Landon.
The 25-year old outfielder was a triple short of a cycle on Tuesday night, going 3-for-4 with a two-run homer. So far in July, Landon has hit .394./487/.727 in 38 plate appearances.
