Evan Johnson continues to inch closer and closer to the AppleSox and West Coast League single-season RBI records...with three RBIs last night, Johnson is now at 44 for the season...four RBI would tie him with Mitchell Gunsolus (2012) for the AppleSox single-season RBI record...seven RBI would tie Johnson for the WCL single-season record, set in 2014 by Vince Fernandez (Yakima Valley Pippins)...Gunsolus had 54 games in 2012 to set the AppleSox RBI record...Johnson has played in 35 so far for the AppleSox, and will have 57 opportunities this season.
