Stats show Morban, 21, of San Cristobal, Dominican Republic, batted .400, with three doubles, a home run, nine RBI and six runs scored during the opening series of the second half against Mobile. Morbon homered, doubled twice and posted a career high five RBI in Saturday’s 10-5 win over the BayBears at The Ballpark at Jackson.
