INDIANAPOLIS - For the third time this season, Tribe infielder Christopher Bostick has been named Indianapolis Indians Player of the Week. After losing his fifteen-game hitting streak on May 6 and being recalled to Pittsburgh two days later, Bostick returned to Indianapolis where he has an active six-game hitting streak. 

The 24-year-old infielder paced the Indians offense in contests against Norfolk and Columbus this past week. He hit .556 (15-for-27) with one home run and four RBI and, since his return to Triple-A, has yet to play a game in which he has registered less than two hits.

His stellar week with the bat improved his average to .371 (46-for-124), which ranks second in the International League. The Indians are also 5-1 (.833) since his return to the lineup and sit above .500 for the first time since April 8.

Honorable Mention: Left-hander Steven Brault was also in the running for Player of the Week after going 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA (2 ER in 12.0 IP) while striking out 10 total batters in matchups against Norfolk and Columbus. They were his first two wins of the season.
