Noah “Bo” Naylor (pictured) smacked his first home run at the A-Ball level on Friday night, a ninth-inning solo shot to left field that brought Lake County to within one run of Wisconsin in what was ultimately a 5-4 loss.
Both Naylor, who was a standout with proud partner program the Ontario Blue Jays before being drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the first round, and Grayson Rodriguez, made waves among P15 alums this week.
Rodriguez was just named to MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospects list, and the Delmarva star turned in another gem on Thursday night, holding Greensboro to just one run on three hits with a walk and eight strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings of work, earning his fourth professional win along the way.
