Rockies prospects go off for 11 runs in Lancaster

New, 16 comments

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

Rockies prospects are playing their first season as the Lancaster JetHawks in a stadium known as perhaps the most extreme in the already offense-heavy California League. Tuesday, the stadium known as The Hanger played host to another ho-hum 20-run game.

The JetHawks started piling up runs early, scoring six in the second, two each in the third and fourth, and another one for good measure in the seventh. Everyone (except Roberto Ramos, playing, hilariously, as the designated hitter) reached base and scored at least once. Sam Hilliard led the way with a 3-for-4 performance that included two runs and two RBI. Hilliard is making the most of the friendly confines in Lancaster, hitting .459/.535/.730 in 11 games; that’s a 1.265 OPS, for the record.

Interestingly enough, Lancaster only managed five total extra-base hits with zero (0) home runs. Unfortunately, they were the only affiliate able to secure a win on Tuesday.
