It was a good day to be a Blue Jay in Arizona on Monday. Chip Cannon belted his league leading…
Unbelievable! Cannon Homers Again!
However, the expected happened in the bottom of the ninth with Jesse Chavez on the mound. Cannon was the second batter in the inning, and on a 1-1 pitch he connected with the pitch to send it over the right field wall.
It was the second consecutive game Cannon hit a home run, and over his last six games, he has gone deep six times. He has hit a home run in six of his last nine games.
Cannon also has recorded at least two hits in six straight games, and is batting 12-for-23 during that span. In 16 total games he's batting .400 (24-60).
"He's been unbelievable," noted one scout in Arizona. "It's beyond what anyone expected."
"He's the talk of the league right now."
However, as consistent he has been hitting home runs, he's also as consistent in striking out. Cannon struck out once again on Tuesday, and raised his total to 19 this fall. He has fanned in five consecutive games and in 16 of his 19 games this fall.
