  At one point, Renz struck out nine straight batters in his dominant outing.
  “It was like nothing I’ve ever seen before in my time at Fox Lane,” veteran Coach Hillis said of Renz (3-1, 2.20 ERA, 58 K, 28.2 IP), a beacon of hope in an otherwise subpar season (4-9) in Class A. “My greatest joy this season has been watching Tyler Renz pitch. I’ve never seen anything like the win over White Plains, it was unbelievably dominant. His first pitch of the game was 92 (MPH) his last pitch of the game was a fastball at 89. It was unreal.”
