Facing the Fresno Grizzlies on Saturday night, the Sacramento River Cats fell 7-3 but the game was not without a significant highlight reel for the Cats as Adam Duvall went yard three times in the evening. Responsible for all of the team's runs and 60% of their hits during this game, it's no wonder that Duvall is headed to Omaha for the Triple-A All Star team this week.Duvall is hitting .267 this year and has 20 home runs thus far, including a pinch hit grand slam. His three homer game last night ties a franchise high and is the first time a River Cat has acheived the feat since July 17, 2014.
With 24 multi-hit games, Duvall leads the River Cats and is one of only two hitters to have a 5 hit game this season (the other being Kelby Tomlinson). He also leads the team with 15 multi-rbi games, and hit for the cycle for the first time in River Cats history back on April 19.
The 26 year old 11th round pick spent some time with the major league ball club in the second half of the 2014 season, hitting just .192/.234/.342 with 77 plate appearances. Since 2010, Duvall has played in every level of the minor league system and had a 30 home run, 100 RBI season in 2012 with the San Jose Giants.
We'll keep you updated on the Triple-A All Star game and want to wish Duvall the best of luck as he represents the River Cats in Omaha.
