Double-A outfielder Corey Dickerson hit his 11th homer for the Drillers and 20th on the season. He had nine round-trippers at High-A earlier in the summer. Dickerson now has 67 extra-base hits (40 doubles, seven triples and the 20 homers).
Low-A middle infielder Taylor Featherston doubled twice and finished with three hits at Low-A Asheville. He bumps his batting average to .304. He's hitting .350 in his last ten games with nine extra-base hits. Featherston is a player of intrigue and bears following.
Third baseman Sam Mende homered and doubled for Asheville and finished with three hits. Mende has not hit well since May (.407) but he has shown outstanding production since being drafted (47 doubles, 25 homers and 102 RBI in 149 games).
