PORTLAND, MAINE – On Monday, four Fisher Cats were named to participate in this year’s Eastern League All-Star Game, taking place on July 10 in Richmond, Virginia.

Infielders Nash Knight and Santago Espinal, outfielder Forrest Wall and starting pitcher Zach Logue  will represent New Hampshire on the Eastern Division squad, with Fisher Cats manager Mike Mordecai managing the Eastern Division due to New Hampshire’s status as defending league champions.

In his second season with New Hampshire, Espinal is hitting .263 with four home runs, six stolen bases and a team-high 37 RBIs. Espinal drove in six runs on April 17 in Binghamton, and earned Eastern League Player of the Week honors on April 21.

Knight excelled in the month of May, hitting .356 with a .985 OPS, also stringing together a 13-game hitting streak from May 16 to June 7.

Wall is hitting .277 with four home runs, nine stolen bases and an OPS of .800. He earned Eastern League Player of the Week honors on June 3. His seven-day tear included a .571 batting average, six doubles, two home runs, and a four-hit game.

In May, Wall ranked fourth in the league in both batting average (.327) and on-base percentage (.409).

Logue is 3-3 with a 3.14 ERA in 13 starts with the Fisher Cats. In three outings this month, Logue has allowed just three earned runs in 19 innings (1.42 ERA) with 16 strikeouts.

He started his Double-A career with five perfect innings against Binghamton on April 6, and most recently held the Rumble Ponies to one run while matching a season-high seven innings on Wednesday.
