Michael Paez is slugging .423 over his last eight games.

Columbia Fireflies third baseman Michael Paez sustained his blistering pace Friday night, going 1-3 with a double, RBI, and walk in a 3-1 loss to the West Virginia Power at Spirit Communications Park.

 

Paez, a former Brooklyn Cyclone, is slugging .423 over his last eight games. For the season, the Miami, Florida, native is batting .288 with five homers, 25 RBI and 18 bases-on-balls in 125 at-bats in 36 contests.

With the Cyclones, Paez, 22, hit .190 with two dingers and 11 RBI in 179 at-bats in 46 games.

The New York Mets drafted the Coastal Carolina University product in the fourth round of the 2016 MLB amateur draft.  

Paez isn’t the only player streaking: Fireflies shortstop Andres Gimenez singled, extending his on-base streak to 15 tilts. Paez plated Gimenez two batters later to account for Columbia’s only run in the game.
