At 5-18, Vero Beach's second half of the season may be heading south, but Sisk has remained a steady force for the Devil Rays all year long. The 28-year-old shortstop hit six of his 11 home runs last week, including a pair of two-blasts games. Sisk hit a solo shot in the seventh and a three-run homer in the eighth to propel Vero Beach to a 6-5 win over Dunedin on July 12, the team's only win in its last seven games.

The FSL had so many quality mound outings this week, the league couldn't name just one Pitcher of the Week. Phil Coke tossed his first career shutout on Saturday, a complete game against St. Lucie in which he struck out five and walked one. The southpaw lowered his ERA from 3.07 to 2.55. Brett Sinkbeil also threw a complete-game shutout, the longest outing of his career. The right-hander allowed just five hits and a walk while fanning four at Fort Myers.
