Though the Charleston Dirty Birds are currently leading the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball’s South Division (as of Wednesday night) with a league-best record, their upcoming opponent for this weekend might just have them exactly where they want them.

For the second time in this young season, Charleston and the High Point Rockers will square off as part of a three-game series with potentially important implications in the South’s first-half title race. 

During their first go-round April 30-May 2, High Point took Game 1 over Charleston with a shutout victory before the Dirty Birds stormed back to take the final two games and the series. Charleston’s 13-5 record following Wednesday’s games is the best in the ALPB, but successive defeats to Gastonia in which it let up a combined 30 runs in two games could indicate a weak point for the Rockers (currently 10-8, and three games back of Charleston) to exploit.

All three matchups in the upcoming Dirty Birds-Rockers series — at 6:35 p.m. Friday, 6:35 p.m. Saturday, and 4:05 p.m. Sunday (all Eastern Time) — will be streamed live on FloBaseball, the exclusive streaming home of ALPB baseball all season long.

Players to Watch

Gabriel Cancel, INF, Charleston Dirty Birds

A former seventh-round choice in the MLB Draft who at one point reached Triple-A in the Kansas City Royals organization, Cancel — still only 27 — has proven thus far in his first season of play in the ALPB that he has a lot to offer in the independent league. Signing with Charleston in the offseason, the Puerto Rico native currently ranks second in the league (following Wednesday’s games) in RBIs with 20 and is currently riding a huge hot streak at the plate, tallying a total of 10 RBIs in his past four games alone with five home runs in that same stretch. 

In the Dirty Birds’ game Wednesday night against Gastonia, for instance, Cancel ripped two homers — taking the league lead in the process by going up to nine homers on the season — with four RBIs in what was ultimately a losing effort. Regardless, Cancel (now up to a .338 average on the year so far, coming back from a .240 mark on May 1) can’t be blamed as he’s done his part lately to try and win Charleston some more ball games. 

Nick Longhi, OF, High Point Rockers

Until Cancel broke the league home run race open with his two-homer night against Gastonia, Longhi was locked in a tie for the league lead in long bombs entering Wednesday’s games. Also a former Triple-A player (having reached that level with both the Cincinnati Reds and Colorado Rockies’ organizations), Longhi opted to go independent in 2022 by signing with Charleston — and he now gets to face his former team as a member of the Rockers this weekend. 

A solid power option at the plate with the Dirty Birds two years ago as he hit 10 home runs and 41 RBIs on .522 slugging across 56 games, Longhi is currently on pace to shatter his career-best marks in Indy ball as a first-year player at High Point with seven homers and 17 RBIs to date across just 14 games. Already holding three outings with three RBIs or more on the season, Longhi is a deep threat who could eat against Charleston’s pitching staff, which currently has the second-highest ERA (5.73) in all of the ALPB following Wednesday’s games, but he was held homerless in the two teams’ previous three-game series earlier in the year.
