Rockport’s Monar making first start of season for Otters

Blake Monar, a lefthander from Rockport who has been sidelined with an injury, will make his first start of the season for the Evansville Otters (22-14) against the Schaumburg Boomers (20-18) at 5:05 p.m. Sunday. Riding a five-game winning streak, the Otters are going for the sweep. Schaumburg has lost five in a row.

Monar is still recovering from extensive knee surgery last summer and has had a tight elbow and aching knee, said Evansville manager Andy McCauley. Monar sparked South Spencer to the 2007 Class 2A state championship and was also a standout at Indiana University. He was drafted in the 12th round by the Washington Nationals in 2011 and spent two years in their organization.

About Gordon Engelhardt

Many moons ago, I was a semipro baseball pitcher and my love for the grand old game continues unabated. I was lucky enough to cover the White Sox in the 1983 ALCS and the Cubbies in the 1984 NLCS while living in northern Illinois. I have covered several Cardinals games, but never in postseason.
