Pelzel Blisters Lynchburg
Thursday, July 16th , 2082
After a 5-hit effort to lead Salem's 8-6 victory over the Lynchburg Hillcats, shortstop Joe Pelzel told BNN beat writers it had been "a special day."

"It really doesn't matter whether it's sandlot ball, high school or college, two hits in a game is nice," he said. "Three or four is better, but five or more is out of sight. And to do that at the Carolina League-level is really something special."

The 22-year-old player earned his accolades today at Salem Memorial Baseball Stadium with a spectacular 5-for-5 game against the Hillcats.

"His swing is getting there," said Red Sox skipper Wes DeMars, who spoke glowingly of Pelzel after the game. "We want him to be quick with his swing, short and compact. We want him to be patient and go the other way when he can. Joe did that to perfection today."

Joe Pelzel doubled in the 1st, hit an RBI triple in the 3rd, hit an RBI single in the 4th, doubled in the 6th and singled in the 8th.

This year Pelzel has batted at a .333 pace with 9 hits, no home runs, 2 RBIs and scored 5 times.
