BOX SCORE

Giants prospect Mac Williamson has gone hitless in the major leagues this season, in only three at-bats. But on Sunday, he showed his potential value to San Francisco's lineup with a monster game for the Sacramento River Cats in Triple-A. 

Williamson went 3-for-3 and knocked in an astounding seven runs in Sacramento's 10-5 win over the Tacoma Rainiers.

The career-night started early for Williamson. In the first inning, he roped a two-run double to the right-center gap to give Sacramento an early lead. 

A two-run single in the second inning gave Williamson his second hit and fourth RBI on the night.

One inning later, Williamson smacked his second double of the game, this time clearing the bases. Through three innings and three at-bats, Williamson already had two doubles, one single and five RBI. 

His last RBI came on a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. The game was called after the top of the sixth inning due to rain in Tacoma.

Just two nights before, he hit two home runs in one game to help the River Cats beat the Las Vegas 51s, 3-1.

In 10 games played for the River Cats, Williamson is now hitting .385/.419/.821 with four home runs and 15 RBI. 

 

Williamson leads the River Cats in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, home runs, RBI and doubles. He hit .219/.235/.281 in 10 games with the Giants last season.

This spring, Williamson was one of the stars of the Cactus League for the Giants. In 27 games, he hit .298/.388/.614 with five homers and 14 RBI.
