PLAYERS OF THE WEEK (8/6 – 8/12)

BATTER OF THE WEEK: Chiefs OF Michael Vento earns the knod this week after putting together a 7-for-21 week (.333). Vento hit safely in the first four games he played of the week to run his hit streak to a personal season-high seven games. He began the week with a 3-for-6 day in Ottawa scoring two runs while smacking a double.

HONORABLE MENTION: C Robinzon Diaz had a team-high .357 batting average (5-for-14) with two doubles and a RBI.

PITCHER OF THE WEEK: The bullpen was terrific for the Chiefs over the past seven days so it only makes sense that a reliever takes home the honor this week. RHP Lee Gronkiewicz posted a 1-0 record in two games throwing four shutout frames. Gronkiewicz gave up only two hits with no walks and four strikeouts.

HONORABLE MENTION: A pair of relievers gave Gronkiewicz a run for his money this week. RHP Jordan De Jong went 1-0 in three appearances throwing 3.1 innings. He surrendered no runs on two hits and two walks with four strikeouts. RHP Justin James threw five innings without giving up an earned run in two appearances.
