DURHAM, NC – The official statistician of the American Association, Pointstreak, has announced that Lincoln Saltdogs 1B Ian Gac (pictured) has been named this week’s Pointstreak Player of the Week for the week ending September 1.

Both of the first baseman’s home runs came early. In the first inning, Gac belted a three-run shot to put Lincoln on top.
