PORTLAND, Maine – New Hampshire held the 2017 Eastern League All-Star Game and a year later, it looks like the All-Star Game will continue to have a significant New Hampshire presence.
On Friday, the Eastern League announced that six Fisher Cats will represent the Eastern Division in Trenton at the 2018 Eastern League All-Star Game on July 11.
Outfielder Jonathan Davis will join infielders Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Cavan Biggio and Bo Bichette as well as starting pitchers Jordan Romano and T.J. Zeuch on the squad.
As of Saturday night, Davis leads the league in runs scored, doubles and is tied with Bichette for the league lead in hits.
Bichette also trails only Davis in runs and doubles, leading the league in stolen bases.
Biggio leads the league in home runs, walks and sacrifice flies and just took over the league lead in RBI. Guerrero Jr. held that RBI lead for almost three weeks after his injury, leaving with a .407 average.
The two pitching representatives have become co-aces in the Fisher Cats’ starting pitching rotation, with significantly different starts to their seasons in Manchester this year.
Romano began the year 8-0 while Zeuch struggled after earning promotion from Class A-Advanced Dunedin on May 5.
Then around the cusp of June, things switched. Zeuch picked up the slack, winning five in a row while Romano did not record a win during the month of June, going 0-4 in six starts.
