Ivan Melendez goes yard in back-to-back games

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- El Pasoan Ivan Melendez hits homers in back-to-back games for the Diamondbacks High-A team the Hillsboro Hops.

On Saturday Melendez returned to the Hops for the first time since May 28th. The Coronado grad had three chances at the plate and in the top of the fifth thrashed a two-run home run to left field.

Melendez backed-up that performance on Sunday. In his 1st at-bat he doubled on a line drive which brought in a runner. Then in the 3rd Melendez crushed a solo home run.

That now sees his stats for the season improve to 9 home runs, 25 RBIs and 31 hits in 31 games for the Hops.
