About two weeks ago, C.J. Hinojosa went through a mini three-game slump where he went 0-for-11. The on-base percentage leader of the California League has picked up it back up since, collecting 13 hits over his last eight games, including five doubles and two home runs. Both dingers came in Tuesday's series opener in Visalia, and happened in the first three innings of the game, no less. And with two more walks, he is now one of just two players in the league with more walks (25) than strikeouts (23).
On the other side of the country, Adalberto Mejia dominated the Binghamton Mets with seven shutout innings to go along with zero walks and six strikeouts. He allowed just four baserunners, a double and three singles, to lower his ERA to 2.23 on the season, which is seventh best in the Eastern League. Mejia had a weird outing back on April 26, where he didn't make it out of the first inning. Since, the left-hander has tossed 28 innings with a 0.93 ERA and .188 opposing batting average in four starts.
— Chris Shaw picked up two more hits, making it eight in his last 13 plate appearances. During that span he's slugging 1.333 (two doubles, two home runs). Shaw's 15 doubles continue to lead the California League, while he also leads the league in three other categories: slugging percentage (.613), RBI (38), and OPS (1.007).
— Since being called up to Augusta, infielder/catcher (mostly designated hitter) Miguel Gomez has just not stopped hitting. He has hits in 19 of the 23 games he's played, posting a .344 average. He also has 10 multi-hit games, including his two on Tuesday in a blowout loss to Columbia. Of his 31 hits, he has six doubles and three home runs. As a switch hitter, Gomez has a higher slugging percentage from the left side, but a better average from the right.
