Patton Drives in a Career High 10 Runs
Patton was promoted to Dunedin this week following the conclusion of the first half of the Midwest League season. He entered the game hitless in 12 at-bats, but finished 4-for-6 with four runs scored.
Patton lined a two run double in the first inning with two outs and gave Dunedin the early 2-0 lead. In the third inning Patton drove in two more runs with a single. Patton's two runs driven in were the first of five that came in that inning. After reaching base on a fielder's choice in his third at bat, Patton smoked his first Florida State League home run in the fifth inning – a three runs shot. He followed that up with another three-run homer in the sixth inning, before reaching on a fielder's choice once again in his final at-bat.
With his two home runs he has a total of 14 this season, and is second behind current teammate Ryan Patterson for the organizational lead.
Ryan Patterson and David Corrente also homered in the game, and each drove in three runs, while contributing with three hits. Patterson hit his 16th home run of the season, while Corrente hit his second and third of the season.
Eric Nielsen finished the game 3-for-6 with three runs scored, while Ryan Klosterman scored five times. Klosterman finished 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles, and two walks.
Hidden in the game was the outstanding pitching of starter Jesse Litsch. The right-hander tossed six scoreless innings, allowing just three hits, issuing a walk and striking out six batters. The 21-year-old leads the Jays organization with 80 strikeouts this season, while issuing just 8 walks in 88 2/3 innings. Over his last six starts, Litsch is 4-0 with a stingy 0.90 ERA.
