    pinch hitter, prolific test scorer

    After originally being selected as a ODI pinch hitter as Sri Lanka developed new ways of scoring quickly, Jayasuriya adapted quickly and became a prolific Test scorer, eventually topping the country's record tables for both forms of the game.

    I know prolific means (in a large amount) but this doesn't fit in above sentence.

    So, please explain the higlighted group of words.
