PHOENIX -The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today Triple-A Reno outfielder Adam Eaton has been named the organization's Minor League Player-of-the-Month for July.

Eaton, 23, hit .393 (42-for-107) with 23 runs scored, 10 doubles, 4 home runs, 10 RBI and 9 stolen bases in 26 games in July for the Aces.

Eaton leads all Minor Leaguers in hits (164) and runs scored (117). Since 2005, no other Minor Leaguer has collected 152 hits (Matt Gamel, 2008) or 107 runs (Bubba Bell, 2007) before August 1.

The Pacific Coast League Mid-Season All-Star notched 14 multi-hit games in July, including 8 straight multi-hit games from July 4-16 (.563, 18-for-32). His Aces franchise-record 50 multi-hit games have already surpassed the previous mark of 45 (Doug Deeds, 2010).

A native of Springfield, Ohio, Eaton was drafted by the D-backs in the 19th round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft from Miami University of Ohio.

Every month during the season, the D-backs Player Development staff chooses the player and pitcher most deserving of the honors based on nominations from coaches at each affiliate along with input from the Minor League coordinators
