Mr. 4th of July

Milt Abbott hit 2 extra inning walk-0ff home runs on July 4th vs. Baltimore. With the score tied at 3 in the bottom of the 12th inning of the PM1 game he hit a solo shot to center field off of Santiago Cortez. And in the PM2 game he crushed a three-run homer to left off of Rafael Miranda. That home run broke a 5-5 tie in the 11th.

Abbott, 23, is a former 2nd round draft pick playing in his 2nd big league season. He has hit 16 home runs in 449 career ABs.
