A Mendonca Among Boys

Spokane’s Tommy Mendonca has been on a bit of a hot streak lately, hitting .395 in his last ten games.  He has had multiple hits in half of those and exactly three in four.

Last night against Salem-Keizer, the 21-year-old out of Fresno State enjoyed the best game of his young career, belting three solo homeruns to lead the Indians to a 6-2 win.

Mendonca was the Most Outstanding Player at the 2008 College World Series while playing for the Bulldogs team that won the national championship.  He was selected in the second round of the 2009 draft.  He hasn’t hit for a ton of power early in his professional career, with only four homeruns in 114 at-bats prior to yesterday’s outburst, but he had 29 in two seasons of college ball, so maybe those three were the rule rather than the exception.
