Caveman Alum Drury Homers Propelling Class A South Bend to Championship Series
Grants Pass High Graduate Brandon Drury smashed a three run home run on a 4 RBI night to propel the Class A South Bend Silver Hawks into the Midwest League Championship Series.
Runners were at 2nd and 3rd with two outs in the 5th inning when Fort Wayne decided to challenge Drury even though he had homered against them in the first two games of the series. On the first pitch the Diamondbacks number 15 prospect smacked a slider over the fence staking the Silver Hawks to a 4 to 1 lead.
Drury finished the series hitting .385 with three homers, a triple and six RBI’s.
The Silver Hawks play Quad Cities in the first game of that series today.
