Rockies prospect Garrett Hampson has big day to give Yard Goats second win of the season

Rockies prospect news and game results for games from April 13, 2018

It hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows for the Rockies’ Double-A affiliate so far this season. Going into Friday’s game the Hartford Yard Goats were 1-6 on the young season and averaging less than 2.5 runs per game on offense. Enter: Garrett Hampson. The no. 9 PuRP led a lineup that broke out for eight runs against the New Hampshire FisherCats, putting up three hits and a walk and scoring twice. Hampson was one of four Yard Goats with a multi-hit game, including Sam Hilliard (no. 17 PuRP) and Yonathan Daza (no. 19 PuRP).

Hampson is adjusting well in his first taste of Double-A so far, hitting .313/.371/.438 and five stolen bases already at the top of the Hartford lineup. Meanwhile, top prospect Brendan Rodgers is off to a very slow start, who went 0-for-4 with two runs scored on Friday. In his second go-around at Double-A (he spent the second half of the 2017 season with the Yard Goats) he has just five hits and one walk through 33 at bats. Granted, two of those five were home runs, plus another double, so it’s not time to go into full panic mode. Also: 33 at bats.
