Former Gardner Edgerton High School baseball standout Bubba Starling stroked a grand slam home run for the Wilmington Blue Rocks in Carolina League action against the Potomac Nationals last week.
Starling, the Kansas City Royals’ number-one draft choice in 2011, was the starting center-fielder for the advanced class A club.
Wilmington holds a 29-32 record in Carolina League action and will play a three-game series against Winston-Salem this week.
