Colorado Rockies prospect Brendan Rodgers extends hitting streak to 23 in loss

New, comments

Colorado Rockies minor league news and notes from June 15, 2017.

Lancaster JetHawks shortstop Brendan Rodgers notched a fifth inning single to extend his hitting streak to 23 games in a 4-1 loss at Rancho Cucamonga.

Rodgers also added a triple later in the game to bump his batting average to .404, which leads all of minor league baseball. On a more macro level, Rodgers is hitting .404/.425/.695 with 35 extra-base hits in 46 games with the JetHawks.

These may be the last days in Lancaster for the Rockies’ top prospect, as he is knocking down the door for a promotion to Double-A Hartford, which he may just get after participating in the California League All-Star Game next week.

For now, the 20-year-old will have to settle for more feasting on High-A pitching.
