Just one day after he hit three home runs in one game for Triple-A Sacramento, Mac Williamson (Harrisonburg 2011) was called up to the major leagues, got the start in left field, and hit another home run! (And drove in 4 runs for good measure.)
No one can say he didn’t deserve it, as Mac walloped Triple-A pitching to the tune of 378/459/756 with 9 home runs in 23 games. The Giants are 15-20, and were getting poor production out of their outfield corps. Why not give a 28-year old with some power a shot? (By the way, Mac is the 16th former Valley Leaguer to appear in the major leagues this season so far.)
Congratulations, Mac! May your stay be a long one!
