Watch Heliot Ramos Hit Two-run Homer in Second Game Back From Injury

It can't get much worse for the Giants.

Every team experiences losing streaks. Falling 11-3 to the worst team in the National League to extend your losing streak to six games is a whole different story, though.

There's light at the end of this tunnel, however, one which might not shine bright until 2021. In San Jose, cover your eyes, the light doesn't get much brighter. 

While the Giants top prospect Joey Bart continues to rehab from a fractured hand, No. 2 prospect Heliot Ramos is back on the field for the San Jose Giants in Class A Advanced. In only his second game back from a sprained knee, Ramos already rocketed his team-leading sixth home run. 

Ramos worked a 3-2 count in the bottom of the eighth inning on Tuesday night in San Jose before turning on an inside fastball for a deep two-run blast over the left-field wall. 

The 19-year-old center fielder went 3-for-4 at the plate in the Giants' 9-4 loss to the Lancaster JetHawks. He went 1-for-4 in his first game back the night before, and threw a runner out at third base.

Ramos, the youngest player on the team, is now slashing .296/.429/.620 with six home runs, five doubles and a 1.048 OPS. He leads San Jose in batting average, home runs, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, and OPS despite missing 28 games. 

The Giants hold the No. 10 pick in Monday's MLB draft. The light can't go down much lower in the city right now, but with talents like Ramos and more top picks the next two years, it could be sunglasses season for years to come in San Francisco.
