Adames drove in a career-high five runs in Triple-A Durham's win over Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Alex Kraft of MiLB.com reports.
There were already whispers of a possible September promotion for the promising prospect, and Friday's effort certainly did nothing to dissuade that notion. Adames drew a first-inning walk before roping a two-run single in the fourth, another RBI single in the fifth and a run-scoring two-bagger in the seventh. His fifth and final RBI came on a ninth-inning sacrifice fly, allowing him to eclipse the four-RBI tally he'd managed on two previous occasions in his minor-league career. Adames has now compiled six hits over his last two contests, raising his season line to a solid .273/.366/.417. Aug 19 3:05 am (EST)
