Adames To Represent Isotopes In All-Star Game

July 7, 2015

Infielder Cristhian Adames will now represent the Albuquerque Isotopes and the Pacific Coast League in the 2015 Triple-A All-Star Game to be hosted at Werner Park in Papillion, NE, on Wednesday, July 15.

Adames will take the place of outfielder Matt McBride, who was elected to represent the Isotopes by the fans. McBride sprained his right ankle rounding second base on July 3 and will not be able to participate in the All-Star Game.

The 23-year-old prospect is currently batting .321, which ranks sixth in the PCL. Adames also has 35 runs scored, 15 doubles, a triple, seven home runs, 34 RBI and six stolen bases.

Adames may currently be on the hottest streak of any Isotopes batter this season. He finished Sunday's game 3-for-4 with an RBI. It was his second-straight three-hit game and fourth in his last six appearances. During his last nine games, Adames is now batting .511 (23-for-45) with eight runs scored, four doubles, two homers and 12 RBI. One of the home runs was a walk-off blast in the bottom of the ninth against Reno on June 2. He has hit safely in 10 straight games and in 15 of his last 16 with nine multi-hit outings during that stretch.
