In 39 Midwest League games this year, Houston Astros prospect Derek Fisher hit six homers and drove in 24 runs. He’s off to a much-hotter pace in the California League.

Fisher, who was promoted Friday from the Quad Cities River Bandits to the Lancaster JetHawks, made quite a memorable High-A debut Saturday. He went 4-for-6 with three home runs — two grand slams and a solo shot — and a double. He drove in 12 runs, breaking the previous Cal League single-game mark of 11 RBI set by Bob Rivich in 1954.

The JetHawks won the game, 16-3.

Lancaster’s starting pitcher, Adrian Houser — another former River Bandit — took a no-hitter into the 6th inning. He struck out seven and walked none while allowing two runs on four hits in six innings.

Devenski, Hader toss no-hitter

Former River Bandits pitchers Chris Devenski and Josh Hader combined to throw a rain-shortened no-hitter for the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks on Friday.

Devenski gave up only one walk and struck out four in five innings. His record improved to 6-0. Hader walked one in the third of an inning he pitched before rain delayed and eventually ended the game.

Both pitched for the River Bandits in 2013.
