Offensive Player of the Week
B.J. Szymanski, Dayton
.406 (13-32), 8 R, 3 2B, 0 3B, 4 HR, 8 RBI, 2 BB, 8 SO, 2 SB, .875 SLG
Syzmanski was hitting a dismal .173 entering Monday's game, and his average had not risen above the Mendoza line at any point in the season. What a difference a week makes, as he's now sitting at .239. Szymanski accumulated 13 hits this past week, seven of which went for extra bases. The highlight of the center fielder's hot streak came on Thursday, when he went 4-for-5 with two homers as the Dragons cruised to a 6-2 win over Clinton.
Pitcher of the Week
Robert Mosebach, Cedar Rapids
2-0, 1.29 ERA, 2 G, 2 GS, 14.0 IP, 15 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 10 SO
Mosebach has yet to be defeated in six starts this season, and this past week he turned in two winning efforts. On Monday the 21-year-old right-hander took on South Bend and scattered seven hits in eight shutout innings. On Sunday he surrendered three runs -- two earned -- in six innings as Cedar Rapids edged Wisconsin, 6-5.
