Barrios played in five games against the Kernels and went 13-for-18 for an incredible average of .722. He also walked twice and six of his hits were doubles to compile an OPS of 1.818. Barrios scored four runs, drove in eight, stole two bases without being caught, and added in a few defensive gems for good measure.
