Offensive Player of the Week
B.J. Szymanski, Dayton
.406 (13-32), 8 R, 3 2B, 0 3B, 4 HR, 8 RBI, 2 BB, 8 SO, 2 SB, .875 SLG
Syzmanski was hitting a dismal .173 entering Monday’s game, and his average had not risen above the Mendoza line at any point in the season. What a difference a week makes, as he’s now sitting at .239. Szymanski accumulated 13 hits this past week, seven of which went for extra bases. The highlight of the center fielder’s hot streak came on Thursday, when he went 4-for-5 with two homers as the Dragons cruised to a 6-2 win over Clinton.
