Dbacks MiLB Round-Up 6/1: Lamb Rakes for 5 Hits

Jake Lamb went 5 for 6 in a big Mobile win. - Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Jake Lamb had a monster night at the plate going 5 for 6 with 3 doubles and a triple. That raises his triple slash to .305/.385/.533 with half of his 60 hits in 54 games going for extra bases. Lamb is getting dangerously close to being ready for a major league tryout and he's probably making either Prado or Hill expendable in a trade deadline deal for some top flight pitching. Lamb wasn't the only minor league bat with a monster night. Roger Kieschnick and Andy Marte each went 4 for 5 for Reno. In Mobile Mark Thomas hit 2 homers and drove in 5 while Jon Griffin hit a grand slam and drove in 5 more.
