Paul Goldschmidt is getting all the attention for his homers at Dodger Stadium, but Arizona Diamondbacks prospect Brandon Drury’s coming out party against the boys in blue should not be overlooked.
Drury, who was called up on September 1, went yard Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers for his first career home run. He did it again Thursday afternoon against one of the league’s best, Clayton Kershaw.
The Visalia Rawhide, the minor league team Drury also played 94 games for last season, tweeted their congrats to Drury — though they weren’t surprised. He hit 19 home runs for them in 2014.
Drury has played most of this season with Triple-A Reno Aces where he was hitting .331 with two home runs and 25 RBI. He also played with the Double-A Mobile Bay Bears, hitting .278 with three homers and 36 RBI.
