Clark goes 4-for-4 in rain-shortened five-inning victory

Brewers No. 3 prospect is 6-for-7 in his first two games with Helena

Brewers No. 3 prospect (No. 80 overall) Trent Clark went 4-for-4 with three RBIs as Rookie Level Helena defeated Missoula, 8-2, in a rain-shortened five-inning game. The first-rounder is 6-for-7 (.857) after receiving a promotion from the Arizona League.

All six of his hits were singles, which is on par with his work for the AZL Brewers. Drafted No. 15 overall this summer, Clark hit .309/.422/.442 with just 14 extra-base hits (one homer) in 43 games out in the southwest.

His career got off to a rough start in the desert as Clark was carted off the field on June 22 after running into the outfield wall. Starting in center field, he was hurt chasing a ball into the right-center-field gap. He nearly came up with the highlight-reel catch, but stumbled at the warning track and crashed into the padded wall.

Clark was diagnosed with a concussion, and missed two weeks before returning to the AZL lineup with a 1-for-4, two-walk outing that included four runs.
