Dan Ortmeier continues to struggle at the plate in his attempt to win the 1B job. Today he went 1 for 4 with an RBI. His only hit was a ground ball to 3B where he beat the throw by about a half a step. I think the thirdbaseman was a little surprised that a 6'4" firstbaseman could run that fast. He did have a couple of good ABs where he saw a bunch of pitches instead of making an out on the 1st or 2nd pitch as he has been doing.
