Tater Talk: 2041.28 – Week in Review, 8/11 - 8/17

Image WEEK IN REVIEW: (4-2) In the biggest series to date, Boise came away with two wins in three games against Frontier rival Calgary. The Spuds then split a two-game series versus Atlantic City before starting a four-game set against New Orleans with a win. Boise's four wins put them one game up on Calgary and with the best record in the league.


HITTER OF THE WEEK: Ricardo Ruíz - 9-for-25, 1 HR, 5 R, 6 RBI (.360 AVG, .985 OPS)

PITCHER OF THE WEEK: Frank Metcalf - 2 G, 13.2 IP, 2-0, 6 K/1 BB (3.29 ERA, 1.10 WHIP)

GAME OF THE WEEK: On August 12th, the Spuds took their second straight from the Calgary Pioneers by the score of 4-2. It was a team effort buoyed by the team's less heralded members. With #1-4 hitters going just 3-for-16, the bottom third of the lineup combined to hit 4-for-9 with two RBI, led by Motonobu Yamashita's two doubles and stolen base. Celio Marin pitched into the six inning before three Boise relievers combined for 3.2 innings of one-hit ball. Jesús Arce faced just one batter to earn his 9th save of the year.

Injuries to relievers don't actually count, do they? Maybe Bruno could tutor the Sox trainer and teach him the ways of the Force ...
