HUNTSVILLE, ALA. - Brett Lawrie is going to run out of room on his trophy shelf pretty soon. He just added another award, his third of the month, to his name when the Milwaukee Brewers named him their Minor League Player of the Month for the month of June.

Lawrie led the Southern League in most offensive categories for a good part of June. His batting average for the month was .360 (41-for-114). He knocked in 14 RBI and a team-leading 12 doubles. He drew seven walks and swiped eight bases. He continues to be in the top five in the league in the following offensive categories: at bats (376), extra-base hits (40), games (92), hits (107), stolen bases (25), total bases (170) and triples (11).

Additionally, Lawrie was named to the 2010 MLB Futures Game World Team roster and the Southern League All-Star North Division roster. Both games were played last week. Milwaukee's Director of Pro Scouting Dick Groch will present Lawrie with a plaque tonight before the Stars game against the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx.

Tonight is Military Monday, presented by NetwoRx of Huntsville. Any fans showing a military or government ID card will receive admission for them and their friends for just $1 each. Gates open at 6 p.m. For more information, visit
