The 22-year-old shortstop started the scoring for Fresno with a two-run home run in the third inning, while his solo shot in the eighth provided the Grizzlies with an insurance run. It was his second multi-homer game of the season.

Bregman, No. 18 on the Top 100, scored five runs in a 4-for-5 performance in his Fresno debut Thursday, and then connected on his first Triple-A home run the following day. He had a 2-for-5 showing on Saturday before homering once on Sunday and twice more Monday.

Bregman tore up the Texas League during the first half of the season, hitting .297/.415/.559 with 32 extra-base hits including 14 home runs over 62 games with Double-A Corpus Christi. The 2015 No. 2 overall Draft pick also tallied 54 runs scored and 46 RBIs while posting a stellar 42-26 walk-to-strikeout ratio in 236 at-bats.
