Sunday, June 24th, 2012
Elian Herrera of the Chattanooga Lookouts just keeps going and going. The hot-hitting left fielder went 3-for-4 in his team's 6-5 victory over the Pensacola Blue Wahoos at AT&T Field and extended his hitting streak to 20 games.
"He is definitely on a roll right now" said a Blue Wahoos pitcher. "I thought I made some good pitches against him, but he's a good hitter and hit 'em anyway."
When asked about his performance, Herrera said, "I don't care if I go hitless as long as we get the win."
Elian Herrera hit an RBI single in the 1st, hit an RBI single in the 2nd, walked in the 4th, struck out in the 6th and singled in the 9th.
This year Herrera is batting .343 with 94 hits, 5 home runs, 43 RBIs, 30 walks, .422 OBP and has scored 53 runs.
