Prospect Of The Day
It was a career day for Peoria Javelinas right fielder Lorenzo Cain (Brewers).
The toolsy outfielder was drafted by the Brewers in the 17th round of the 2004 draft and signed as a draft-and-follow after attending Tallahassee (Fla) Community College.
Throughout his professional career, Cain has hit .295/.367/.423 with 24 home runs. Never before had he hit two home runs in the same game … until yesterday.
Cain unloaded for the Javelinas yesterday, going 4-for-4 with a double and two home runs. His five RBIs helped his team defeat the Solar Sox, 13-9.
Over 44 at-bats in the AFL, Cain is now hitting .364/.404/.682.
Other Notable Performances
Phoenix right fielder Sean Doolittle (Athletics) went 2-for-5 with a double and a home run. The round-tripper put Doolittle in sole possession for the league lead in home runs. The lead only lasted an inning, however, as his teammate, catcher Mike McKenry (Rockies), also hit a home run as part of a 3-for-5 day at the plate that also included a double. . . Peoria Saguaros third baseman Brett Wallace (Cardinals) went 4-for-5 as the Saguaros topped the Desert Dogs, 13-11. Wallace now has 12 hits in his last five games and is hitting .297/.358/.541 over 74 at-bats. . . Mesa right fielder Casper Wells (Tigers) went 2-for-5 with his third double and third home run of the fall. . . Although he didn’t post very impressive numbers during the regular season, Scottsdale left fielder Chris Pettit (Angels) continues to hit in Arizona. Yesterday he went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a home run, raising his AFL line to .377/.438/.575 over 106 at-bats and helping the Scorpions knock off the Surprise Rafters, 7-5.
