|Campana Socks it to Redbirds, Cracks 5 Hits|
Sunday, May 27th, 2012
It doesn't happen very often, but it happened for Tony Campana -- a 5-hit day. He went on a rampage at AutoZone Park and paced the Cubs to a 11-5 win over the Memphis Redbirds.
After his dynamite batting performance the Iowa center fielder told the press, "I just tried to get myself in a good count and have a good at-bat. That's all I can control." His philosophy paid some great dividends today. He slammed 5 hits in 6 tries and put his name in the record book.
Tony Campana singled in the 1st, hit an RBI single in the 2nd, singled in the 3rd, hit a solo-shot off Douglas Arguello in the 5th, singled in the 7th and flied out in the 9th.
Campana has a .327 average and a .376 on-base percentage for the year. He has picked up 34 hits, 1 home run and driven in 11 runs.
