Maynard went 1-for-4 for the game. The home run was his second of the Cape League season. Entering play Wednesday night at Brewster, Maynard is batting .286 with four doubles, two home runs and a team-leading 16 RBIs in 22 games. Maynard is second in the Cape League in RBIs and just one off the league lead, and is tied for fifth in home runs, also one off the league lead.

He is 12th in slugging percentage at .444.

Pratt Maynard hits a game-winning grand slam in the midst of an outstanding summer season. This guy warms my sabermetric heart. Including his season at State, he's walked 84 times in 81 games, and since I'm a sucker for guys who walk a lot, Maynard is BTP's new Awesome Person Of Interest. (Redeem for a free beer!) I figure once Tracy's done I'm gonna need a new cause.
