Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to the Cameron Eden

 

The 23-yr-old former 6th round selection from the 2019 Draft is having one heck of a season for the Vancouver Canadians. Eden played CF and batted 3rd for the C’s on Tuesday.

 

Eden wasted little time impacting the game. With Tanner Morris on base (RBI double), Eden drove a 0-1 pitch over the fence in LF for his 4th HR. He lined out to end the frame in the 2nd inning. Eden drew a bases-loaded walk and scored on a Sebastian Espino sac fly, 8-10.

 

The native of Yuba City, CA., reached base leading off the 6th with a HBP. With 2-outs, Eden stole his 29th base, swiping 3rd base. He scored off a Spencer Horwitz single, 11-9. He drew his 25th walk of the season a stole his 30th base in the 8th inning.

 

Cameron Eden finished with a home run in two at-bats, walking twice, stealing a pair of bases, and scoring 3 runs. In 46 games, Eden owns a .282BA with a .802OPS. He has scored 41 runs while collecting 9 doubles, a triple, and 4HR. Eden’s driven in 31RBI with 25BB, and 49K.

 

The Groshans and Smith Show

 

Jordan Groshans played SS and 1st base,  batting 5th for the Fisher Cats. Groshans grounded out leading off the 2nd inning, lined out to 1st in the 4th inning, and hit a fly ball out in the 5th.

 

LJ Talley walked to lead off the 7th inning and Groshans doubled to LF to put runners at 2nd and 3rd. Talley scored off a passed ball and Jordan scored off a Tanner Kirwer sac fly to tie the game at 7-7.  Groshans led off the 9th with a double to LF but was erased on a fielder’s choice.

 

Jordan finished 2-for-5 and a run scored. Groshan owns a .263BA with a .769OPS, 8 doubles, 5HR, and 22RBI.

 

Kevin Smith played LF for the first time in his professional career and batted 5th for Buffalo. He struck out in the 2nd. Smith connected on the first pitch he saw in the 3rd inning, sending the pitch over the wall in LF for a 3-run shot. The 24-yr-old drove in a run in the 5th with a sac fly to give the Herd a 5 to 1 advantage.

 

 

 

Leading off the 7th inning, Kevin Smith singled to CF, scoring 3 batters later off a Dilson Herrera single to LF. Smith finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored, four RBI, and a strikeout. For the year, Smith is slashing .278/.386/.570 with 29 runs scored, 11 doubles, a triple, 11HR, and 37RBI. He also has 10 stolen bases while walking 27 times and striking out 46 times in 44GP.
