Majewski Makes History

Dustin Majewski was a victim of the numbers game during the first half of the season, and was stuck at Single-A Dunedin. He finally got the well-deserved promotion in June and has shown everyone he deserves to be at this level. On Wednesday the outfielder hit his 11th Double-A home run of the season, and it was a franchise-record 4th consecutive game in which he homered.

Majewski has recorded a hit in five consecutive games and is batting 8-for-25 with five home runs and nine runs batted in during that span. In 148 at-bats with New Hampshire he has struck out thirty-nine times, but has also drawn 30 walks.

After the game the outfielder talked about how he's just looking to move up in the organization and reach the major leagues.

"It's always nice to have records like that, but the ultimate goal is getting to the big leagues," Majewski told the Union Leader. "As long as the record can help me move up, that's fine with me."

The left-handed batter is hitting southpaws at a torrid mark, posting a .310 (13-42) batting average, while hitting just .236 against right-handed pitchers.

Majewski, a Florida State League All-Star this season, began the season with the Dunedin Blue Jays and batted .271 with seven home runs and forty-one runs batted in. He batted .385 (20-52) with runners in scoring position, and .421 (8-19) with runners in scoring position and two-outs.

Majewski was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for Chad Gaudin. Majewski had shared the previous record of hitting a home run in three consecutive games with Adam Lind and David Smith.
