Welcome to this week's installment of the summer baseball report as we take a look at what the Seahawks are doing in the various summer leagues throughout the nation.
Jordan Ramsey (Cotuit Kettleers/Cape Cod League) - Ramsey has not pitched since July 12 when he earned a win in relief. Rain has forced several cancellations as Cotuit has not played an official game since that July 12 game against Bourne. In 19 2/3 innings, he's walked just three batters while striking out 13. He has posted a 4.12 ERA
Hunter Ridge (Asheboro Copperheads/Coastal Plain League) - Ridge, who was selected to the CPL All-Star game, is tied for the team lead with four home runs. He will also compete in the league's home run derby during the All-Star festivities. Ridge is hitting .285 with 17 runs batted in.
Luke Dunlap (Columbia Blowfish/Coastal Plain League) - Dunlap has gone 4-for-12 since last report to push his batting average to .217. He owns a .351 on base average and has scored seven runs.

Blaze Tart (Wilmington Sharks/Coastal Plain League) - In his last start, Tart didn't figure in the decision for the Seahawks, who topped Morehead City, 5-2. In four innings, Tart allowed two hits, walked five and struck out five. In six starts, he's posted a 2.66 ERA with 19 strikeouts in 23.2 innings. Opponents are hitting just .202 against him, but have drawn 18 walks.
Justin Livengood (Wilmington Sharks/Coastal Plain League) - Livengood bounced back last week with a pair of impressive relief outings.
