Outfielder Clint Frazier, the Indians' No. 2 prospect, collected five hits and homered twice on Friday, helping lead Class A Lake County to a 14-3 victory against Great Lakes.

Frazier, ranked No. 40 on MLBPipeline.com's Top 100 Prospects list, finished the night 5-for-5 with four runs and three RBIs. He set career highs for hits, runs and home runs.

Right-hander Dace Kime, the Indians' No. 13 prospect, was the beneficiary of Frazier's offensive explosion. Kime allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks in six innings. He struck out four and picked up the victory, improving to 5-10 with a 4.76 ERA this season.

The Indians selected Frazier with the fifth overall pick of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, making him the first high school position player chosen. The start to his first full professional season was delayed by a hamstring injury he suffered during Spring Training, forcing him to miss the first two weeks of the season. After debuting with Lake County on April 17, he got off to a slow start at the plate and hit .241/.335/.329 with one home run in 42 games in April and May.

But as the weather has warmed up, so has Frazier. He is hitting .298/.338/.534 with eight home runs in 32 games in June and July. In 74 games overall, he is hitting .266/.336/.419 with nine home runs and eight stolen bases.
