VANCOUVER — Jackson Hornung, the first Skidmore College alum to be drafted by a professional sports team, cracked a three-run dinger last month for the Vancouver Canadians, the High-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.

In a game against the Spokane Indians, Hornung extended his hitting streak to six straight games before crushing the 0-2 pitch over the center field wall. Hornung finished the night with two hits and three RBI. 

The former Skidmore Thoroughbred has upped his numbers from last year, when he played for the Low-A Dunedin Blue Jays in Florida. As of May 3, he had a .630 OPS with 12 hits and 6 walks in 51 total at-bats.
