MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

New Montgomery Biscuits first baseman Dalton Kelly has been on fire his first six games with the Biscuits.

The California native tore it up in his first series with the organization going 13-for-27 from the plate in his first appearance in AA ball.

"All I'm trying to do is hit a ball hard, put it in play, and see what happens," said Kelly.

"It brings a new dynamic to our team," said manager Brady Williams. "It adds some versatility at first base so we can move some guys around."

Not known for his power, Kelly had three home runs down in Pensacola, but he gives all the credit to Mother Nature.

"If you can look at me, I'm 185 pounds soaking wet," said Kelly. "In Pensacola, there was a gust of wind blowing out to left a few at-bats and I happened to get it up there."

While he is killing it at the plate through the early goings, Kelly still has some room to grow before making it to the show.

"Offensively, he's made some minor adjustments with his stance which seems like it has taken off," said Williams.

"We're all in the minor leagues for a reason," said Kelly. "We all need to get better at every part of our game. Every level you go up, the mental side of the game goes up a little bit and you just have to catch up. Being able to adjust every at-bat with the pitching that's on the mound, it's really good. It evolves during the game, so you have to evolve as a hitter."

Kelly knows his hot streak will cool off at some point but it's all about how you adapt that shows what kind of player you truly are.
