Detroit's No. 5 prospect logged four hits and fell a triple shy of the cycle with four runs scored in Triple-A Toledo's 13-0 rout of Louisville at Louisville Slugger Field. Cameron is 9-for-19 (.474) over his last five games and his .226 average is his highest mark since he sat at .229 on June 5.

The Astros took Cameron with the 37th pick in the 2015 Draft, but shipped him to the Tigers in the 2017 deadline deal that netted Houston Justin Verlander. The son of Major Leaguer Mike Cameron began 2018 with Class A Advanced Lakeland before earning a June promotion to Double-A Erie. He batted .285/.367/.470 in 200 Eastern League at-bats and finished the season with Toledo.
Results in the International League have not come as quickly. The McDonough, Georgia, native hit .211 without a home run in 57 at-bats with the Mud Hens to close out last year and posted a .195 average in this season's opening month. He batted .268 in May, striking out 31 times while drawing six walks.
After going hitless in a five-game stretch earlier this month, Cameron appears to have found his groove. He's fanned only four times in his last five games, two of which were multi-hit efforts.
The rest of the Mud Hens were just as hot Wednesday, as the lineup piled up 20 hits while the pitching staff allowed only five. Kozma finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and five RBIs. No. 12 Tigers prospect
