Rockies prospect Brendan Rodgers headlines offensive explosion for Colorado’s farm teams

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Sunday, May 6, 2018

MLB: Colorado Rockies-Media Day Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

It was a wild day on the Rockies farm yesterday. The four minor-league teams combined for 46 runs and swept their opponents. There were a lot of offensive stars on the day, but none shown brighter than top Rockies prospect Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers hit two home runs (fifth and sixth of the season) and reached base four time in his five plate appearances. He also drove in five runs and scored three times in leading the Hartford Yard Goats to victory.

Roberto Ramos continue his hot streak as well. After not homering for the first time in five days yesterday, Ramos got right back on the long-ball wagon and hit his ninth home run of the season yesterday as part of a four-hit, five-RBI game.

While the offensive output was notable, the starters for the four Rockies farm teams contributed their own fireworks as the struck out a combined 28 batter in 24 innings of work. While the run totals for some of them were high, the peripherals for the group were fairly impressive.
