FSL: Fort Myers Trevor Larnach Extends Hit Streak to Nine Games
As we continue to highlight the Fort Myers Miracle this week, one of their top players so far in 2019, Trevor Larnach, continues to put the bat on the ball in record numbers.
On Wednesday, against the Charlotte Stone Crabs, Larnach pinch-hit in the nine inning and recorded a two-out single to extend his current hitting streak to nine games.
Larnach was the #1 pick in the 2018 MLB Amateur draft for the Minnesota Twins out of Oregon State University.
That season with Oregon, he batted .348, with 72 runs scored, 19 doubles, a triple, 19 home runs, 77 RBIs, and 50 walks, while also leading the school to their third-ever College World Series Championship.
After his College season, Larnach started his first pro season on July 18th with the Elizabethton Twins (Rookie) and promptly recorded his first pro-hit and drove in two RBIs. He remained hot while recording a hit in his first five pro games, adding a 4-hit game on the last night of the streak. For the remainder of the time he spent in Rookie ball, he batted .311, with five doubles, two home runs and 16 RBIs, spanning 61 at bats.
Larnach was then moved to the Cedar Rapids Kernels (Class-A Full) and in 24 games, he batted .297, with 17 runs, eight doubles, a triple, three home runs and 10 RBIs.
Earlier in 2019, he was promoted to the Fort Myers Miracle (Class-A Advanced) and prior to the mid-season break, he batted .311, with 26 runs, 20 doubles, triple, five home runs, 33 RBIs and 28 walks through 62 games. The great first half start earned him a selection to this summer’s Florida State League All Star Game.
Earlier in June Larnach had an eight game hitting streak, while currently he has a nine game hitting streak and through that streak he is batting .375.
His other accolades on the season include Florida State League Player of the Month in May and in early June he earned FSL Player of the Week.
