Mejia gets four hits, walk-off RBI for Mahoning Valley

Catcher Francisco Mejia, the Indians' No. 6 prospect, collected four hits and delivered a walk-off single on Wednesday night, leading short-season Mahoning Valley to an 8-7 victory against Jamestown.

With the game tied and one out in the bottom of the ninth, center fielder Bradley Zimmer, the Indians' No. 4 prospect, reached base on an error, bringing Mejia to the plate. Zimmer stole second base and advanced to third on a throwing error by catcher Taylor Gushue. Mejia made Jamestown pay for the errors, pulling a single to right to bring home Zimmer and give the Scrappers the victory.

Mejia finished the game 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, a run and five RBIs. He set career highs for both hits and RBIs, while also contributing defensively by picking a runner off first base.

In 61 games this season, Mejia is hitting .277/.331/.394. The 18-year old is the seventh-youngest position player in the New York-Penn League.

Zimmer, the Indians' first-round pick in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft, went 0-for-2 with two walks, three runs and two stolen bases. He is hitting .311/.407/.478 with 11 stolen bases in 43 games since signing.
