Friday, July 27th POD goes to Jordan Groshans

The 2018 1st round selection picked up 3 hits and 3 RBI in game 2. He singled but didn’t score in the 1st inning. In the 2nd inning, Groshans hit a 2-out, 2-RBI single pushing Abel Hernandez and Adrian Ramos across the plate for a 3 to 2 lead.

 

Groshans double in the 4th inning to score Adrian Ramos for the 2nd time and extend the lead to 4-2. He had a flyball out and a strikeout in his final two at-bats.

 

The 18-yr-old infielder is batting .421 over his last 10 games with 7 runs scored, 1-HR, and 12-RBI. Overall, he is batting .364 with 14 runs, 10 doubles, 3-HR, and 31 RBI.

Lover of all things Toronto Blue Jays. Blue Jays MiLB fanatic. I strive for average while stumbling onto above average. Rogers isn’t cheap. Baseball is a business. Your right, but I’m more right.
