LAST YEAR'S SPOKANE INDIANS SQUAD HAD TROUBLE GETTING
RUNS WHEN IT MATTERED.
THIS YEAR, THINGS ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
AND JOSE TREVINO IS THE GUY MAKING THE DIFFERENCE.
One of the hardest things at this level is to find
a guy that you can hit in the three hole everyday
and know that he can compete and handle the pressure
of being that guy and he's shown that he can hit.
He came in with the billing that, uh you know they
felt like this guy could swing the bat, that he was
a pretty good hitter but I think he's exceeded our
You just go with the flow man, you do anything you
can to help the ball, uh the ball team win, pretty
much that's what it is, I mean, I can be top three
in anything but if we don't win, it ain't nothing.
TREVINO IS AMONG THE LEAGUE LEADERS IN EVERY BATTING
CATEGORY AND SEEMS TO ALWAYS COME THROUGH WHEN IT
He's shown that he can so you know your expectations
are he's always going to get that big hit, had a huge
hit on the road against Eugene with a couple of outs
in the, in the last inning, and hit a triple to score
a couple of runs to give us a nice, cushioned lead
and uh, so he always seems to be that guy in that
I was just focused on getting a hit, I really wasn't
trying to hit the ball in that corner, I wasn't trying
to get the ball to the fence, I was just trying to
get a run in and it just so happed I met it at the
right time, and it went down the right field line,
and I ran to third.
DESPITE THE PRESSURE THAT COMES WITH BEING MR.
CLUTCH, JOSE IS PRETTY COMFORTABLE WITH HIS ROLE ON
It just comes down to me all the time, I don't know,
it's always the plan, so I guess that's the plan,
oh Jose, go up there with two outs and try to get
a hit, if not err, if you do you're the hero, if not
you know everybody hates you, but I guess everyone
likes me or something, I don't know.
I just want to win.
It wouldn't mean anything to me if I got individual
stats and we didn't win so of course, I want a ring.
WITH TREVINO'S MONSTER BAT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LINEUP,
THOSE CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS COULD BE A REAL POSSIBILTY.
