Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to a great game and game-winning hit by Cameron Eden of the Vancouver Canadians.

 

A Yuba City, CA native, Eden was selected in the 6th round of the 2019 Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays. Drafted as a SS, Eden has only played one at that position as a pro. He’s played mostly CF but Sunday was his first in LF. Eden profiles as a speedy utility player.

 

Batting 3rd, Eden stroked a 2-out single to center and stole 2nd base, his 9th of the season. Luis De Los Santos followed a Spencer Horwitz walk with a double, scoring Eden and Horwitz to give the C’s a 1st inning lead.

 

In the 3rd, Eden leadoff the inning with another single and scored off Ronny Brito’s 1st home run of 2021. Vancouver 4-3. Eden hit a flyball out t CF in the 5th and struck out in the 7th.

 

With Tanner Kirwer standing at 2nd base, 2-outs, Spokane up 6-5, Eden hit an 0-2 pitch to left field for a game-tying RBI single.

 

To top off an already outstanding, clutch day, the 23-yr-old stepped to the plate in the 11th inning with Eric Rivera starting at 2nd base, Tanner Kirwer at 1st (4 pitch walk), and one out. He took ball one, low and in. He took ball two, high. The 3rd pitch of the at-bat was a low strike which he sent to LF, driving Rivera with the game’s winning run.

 

Cameron Eden finished with 4 singled in 6 at-bats. He scored two runs while driving in one RBI (the game-winning RBI doesn’t count). Eden also struck out one and stole his 9th base of the season. On the season Cameron Eden is batting .306 with a.756OPS, 11 runs scored, a double, and 6RBI. He has also walked 7 times with 9 strike outs.

 

The Martin and Groshans Show

 

Austin Martin did not play today. He was pulled from Saturday’s game and pinch-hit for. I haven’t heard anything about an injury so hopefully, he is fine.

 

Jordan Groshans got the day off on Sunday, as well as Saturday. In 10 games, he is batting .237 with 13 strikeouts and 7 walks while driving in 3 runs.
