  • Drove in at least two runs in each game, including a three-RBI effort in the series opener
  • Went 4-for-4 in the second game with two RBI, a double and one run scored
  • Reached base at a .769 clip and slugged 1.111 in the series combining for an OPS of 1.880
  • Earns his first career Player of the Week award

Congrats again to Pellant.
