Overall: 5-0  50.2 IP  3.02 ERA  56 H  12 BB  49 SO  1.34 WHIP  .276 BAA

During that stretch, Heaney has only allowed 4 earned runs in 25.1 innings pitched (1.42 ERA). Heaney’s last start saw him go 7.1 innings while giving up 7 hits, no walks and 2 earned runs while striking out 6.
3.) Mike Fish, Outfielder, Inland Empire 66ers


Past 10 games: .447 AVG  17 H  1 Doubles  0 Triples  0 HR  0 SB
Overall: .304/.384/.363
After a slow start to the season (batting .213 through the first 25 games), Mike Fish has been an on-base machine as of late. The outfielder has reached based for the Burlington Bees in 21 straight games. During that stretch of games, Fish is batting .434 (33-for-76). Fish managed to raise his batting average up to .304 on the season and an OBP of .384. 
4.) Eric Aguilera, First Baseman, Inland Empire 66ers
Past 10 games: .333 AVG  13 H  1 Double  0 Triples  3 HR  2 SB
Overall: .311/.352/.461
Eric Aguilera had a power surge this past week. The first baseman slugged 3 home runs in his last 5 games after hitting just 2 thus far all season. Overall, Aguilera has been hitting a slash line of .311/.352/.461 on the season. Aguilera leads the 66ers in several offensive categories: hits (52), doubles (8), home runs (5), RBIs (30) total bases (77) and stolen bases (6).
5.) Sherman Johnson, Second Baseman, Arkansas Travelers
Past 10 games: .310 AVG  13 H  4 Doubles  0 Triples  2 HR  1 SB
Overall: .226/.355/.387
Despite the low average, Sherman Johnson has still been able to reach the base via the base-on-balls on top of the Travelers lineup. However, it seems now that the bat is starting to catch up with his eye. Johnson is batting .310 in his last 10 games to go with 2 home runs and 4 doubles. Johnson is batting .226 on the season yet still has a very respectable OBP of .355 and SLG of .387. Johnson’s 29 BB’s this season ranks him 3rd in the entire Texas League.
