Navy vs. Orange Game Highlights

10/19/2019

Daniel Munroe (2021 RHP, Pembroke Pines, FL) was lights out over three innings of work, allowing just one hit and striking out a pair. Munroe attacks hitters with a low-80s fastball, topping at 84mph and showing good feel to spin a low-70s slider. The right-hander is effective with the fastball, flashing some late run to the arm-side and creating steep downward plane when on time. 

Christian Orduna (2021 LHP, Miami, FL) impressed on the mound, attacking the zone with ease and running a lively fastball up to 87mph. Orduna explodes down the mound, and the athletic left-hander also showed feel to spin a curveball at 65-67mph. Orduna also showed excellent command of the zone in the outing, striking out four and not allowing a walk over three innings of work. 

Cameron McDuffy (2021 OF, Cooper City, FL) used his all fields approach to record a pair of hits on Saturday. The primary outfielder has a compact and athletic frame, using his strong hands to be quick through the zone. McDuffy also flashed good instincts on the bases, playing aggressive and looking to take the extra base and get into scoring position. 

Jack Speights (2020 2B, Clearwater, FL) has a strong build and uses a patient approach to drive the baseball. Speights shows the ability to lift to and through the pull-side gap, finding the barrel to left-center field. The primary second baseman swings with intent to drive the ball at a consistent clip.
