Shortstop Raul Mondesi hit a solo home run that broke a tie in the fifth inning Wednesday and Class A-Advanced Wilmington beat Carolina 4-3.
The score was tied 2-2 when Mondesi hit his home run that put the Blue Rocks ahead to stay. Mondesi had three hits, scored three times and is batting .313 on the season. It was the first home run of the season for Mondesi, who is hitting .387 with the homer, two triples and two stolen bases in his last eight games.
J.J. Picollo, the Royals’ Assistant General Manager for Scouting and Player Development, admitted it’s hard to believe sometimes that Mondesi is only 18 years old.
