Astros prospect Fisher logs record 12 RBIs

Astros prospect Derek Fisher more than made his mark on Saturday in a record-breaking California League debut.

Fisher, ranked as the club's No. 11 prospect by, racked up a California League-record 12 RBIs for Class A Advanced Lancaster, courtesy of three home runs, including a pair of grand slams.

Fisher, the 37th overall pick in last year's Draft, began his night by clubbing a solo homer in the first inning then followed with a grand slam in the second. As if that wasn't enough, Fisher connected for yet another grand slam just one inning later, giving him three homers in as many at-bats.

After striking out in his next at-bat, Fisher stepped up with the bases loaded once again in the seventh. Though he couldn't come through with his third grand slam of the night, Fisher hit a bases-clearing double to raise his RBI total to 12. The previous California League record for RBIs in a single game was 11 by Stockton's Robert Rivich in 1954.

Fisher, a 21-year-old outfielder, was making his first appearance for Lancaster after spending his first 39 games this season with Class A Quad Cities. He hit .305 with six homers and 24 RBIs during his time with Quad Cities, before putting up half of those home run and RBI numbers in just one outing with Lancaster.

Fisher finished his historic debut 4-for-6 with the three homers and 12 RBIs.
