- Harrisburg Senators' infielder, Steve Lombardozzi, has been named the Eastern League Player of the Week for June 6th - June 12th. Lombardozzi joins Tyler Moore and Archie Gilbert as the third position player to win the award and the fourth time a Senator has won the weekly honor this season. Gilbert earned the award twice, while Moore won last month.
In seven games, Lombardozzi batted .538 with one home run, eight runs, and an RBI. He had 14 hits over two series against Binghamton and Akron, including two three-hit games. In Saturday's loss to Akron, Lombardozzi led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot, the third time he has done that this season. The Fulton, Maryland native is tied for first in the league in triples (6), and tied for third in hits with 75.
Lombardozzi is in his first full season with the Senators. The 22-year old, was selected by the Washington Nationals in the 19th round of the 2008 draft out of St. Petersburg Junior College.
