Dave Adams saw three pro seasons, made single-A with Padres

The Spokane Indians' Dave Adams had the big hit this night in August 1990 - a walk-off two-run triple, The Spokane Chronicle wrote.

But Adams was quick to point to the rest of the team and a history of comebacks afterward, according to The Chronicle.

"There's always someone ready to step up - don't put that it was me tonight," Adams told The Chronicle. "There's just somebody, somehow who does it when they need  to. We're just a great team."

Adams had that big hit in his first season as a pro. He went on to see two more. He topped out at single-A.

Adams' career began that year, taken by the Padres in the 41st round of the draft out of Cal State Los Angeles.

Adams started with the Padres at short-season Spokane. He hit .218 in 46 games, knocking in 20. He hit a two-run double in a late-July come-from-behind win, The Spokane Spokesman-Review wrote.

"We didn't think about being behind," Adams told The Spokesman-Review afterward. "I think we're a real confident team and we don't worry about what inning it is or if we're behind. We don't give up." 

Adams moved to single-A Charleston for 1991. He saw 96 games and hit .236, with 42 RBI. He then saw single-A Waterloo in 1992. He hit .230 there in 80 games. That season proved his last as a pro.
