Rockies prospect Jordan Patterson hits record-setting home run in Isotopes loss

New, comments

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Tuesday, August 7, 2018

Jordan Patterson hit his 21st bomb of the season yesterday, but more importantly collected his 61st home run wearing an Isotopes uniform—a new Albuquerque club record. Patterson entered Tuesday slashing .272/.372/.523 for the ‘Topes with an excellent .251 ISO on the year, second on the team (min 250 PA) only to Mike Tauchman’s .271 ISO. Jordan offers a lot of pop in his bat, and it’s certainly fitting that he will go down in the record books because of his ability to hit the ball over the wall.

Speaking of Tauchman, he had a big day at the plate, as well, going 3-for-4 and hitting a grand slam (his second this homestand) while collecting 5 RBI. Raimel Tapia also had a notable night by going 3-for-4 and extending his Triple-A hitting streak to 13 games.

At the Rookie League All-Star Game in Grand Junction, Coco Montes—the Rockies’ 15th round pick in this year’s draft—made a name for himself by hitting two home runs and 6 RBI in front of the home crowd. Coco is slashing .382/.453/.607 for the Rockies in his first year as a pro, and looks to continue his hot start in the second-half of the season.
