Trent Grisham does more than just hit home runs.
The San Antonio Missions center field continued his run of power hitting on Tuesday by leading off the bottom of the first inning with a home run. He added another in the second – his 13th homer in 34 games in Triple-A.
His two longballs were part of a 12-hit attack by the Missions in an 8-4 victory over the Sacramento River Cats at Wolff Stadium.
Grisham added an RBI single in the fourth inning and his eighth double of the season in the sixth inning.
That left Grisham with the hard part – hitting a triple – when he walked to the plate in the bottom of the seventh. Grisham pulled a 2-1 pitch down the right-field line and into the corner and used his centerfielder speed to record his third triple since joining the Missions.
For the night, Grisham went 5-for-5 with three runs scored and three RBIs. His batting average in Triple-A is a team-leading .381.
