On Thursday, we featured Agawam, Mass., native Seamus Curran, who is beginning to come around at the plate after a few early struggles. This past Monday, Curran and company were closing out a series versus the Asheville Tourists (Colorado) when Bedford, N.H., product Grant Lavigne, ranked the 4th-best prospect in the Rockies system by MLB.com.
Lavigne jacked a 402-foot first inning solo shot, his second of the season. In the top of the fifth, the Shorebirds slugger returned the favor with a 469-foot blast to tie the game, his sixth on the year.
Asked if the two had an opportunity to chat during the series, Curran chuckled.
“He walks a lot, so we’ve talked a lot," the first baseman noted. "He’s a good guy.”
