Tony Brown, Billings
.455 (10-22), 9 R, 2 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 9 RBI, 3 BB, 5 SO, 1 SB, .818 SLG
Brown has hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games and carries a nine-game hitting streak into the sixth week of the season. He notched three multi-hit games last week and knocked in a team-high nine RBIs, giving him 25 on the season. His two homers this week gave him eight on the season ó tops in the Pioneer League. The 6-foot left fielder is hitting .327 with an OBP of .405 an OPS of 1.012.
Matt Klinker was named Midwest League Pitcher of the Week:
Matthew Klinker, Dayton
2-0, 1.50 ERA, 2 G, 2 GS, 12.0 IP, 11 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 9 SO
Klinker recorded two wins this week, giving him three straight starts with a win. In both outings, he lasted six innings, allowing one earned run in each and scattering a combined 11 hits. He struck out a total of nine batters while walking one and lowering his ERA to 3.40 on the season.
Scott Carroll was named Florida State League Pitcher of the Week:
Scott Carroll, Sarasota
1-0, 0.00 ERA, 2 G, 2 GS, 15.0 IP, 10 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 10 SO
Carroll picked up his first win since June 20 with an eight-inning shutout on Saturday against Palm Beach and may have had an even more impressive performance Monday against Sarasota in a 1-0 loss in which he fanned eight in seven scoreless frames. Itís the first time a Sarasota pitcher has tossed back-to-back shutouts this season and the performances helped lower his ERA to 3.39.
