Ellis

Drew Ellis, the No. 14 prospect in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization, smashed two home runs Saturday for the Double-A Jackson Generals.

The third baseman and former Jeffersonville standout went 2 for 4 with a walk and four RBIs, producing his first multi-homer game since being drafted by the Diamondbacks in the second round of the 2017 draft.

The first was a three-run blast to left field in the first inning that gave the Generals a 3-1 lead. He also went deep on the first pitch he saw in the sixth.

Ellis is hitting .258 with six home runs with 14 doubles and 31 RBIs for the Generals. He has a .365 on-base percentage and a .423 slugging percentage.

After a slow start in his first season at Double-A, Ellis hit a blistering .314 with three homers and 17 RBIs in 26 games in May.
