DURHAM, NC – The official statistician of the American Association, Pointstreak, has announced that El Paso Diablos SS Maikol Gonzalez (pictured) has been named this week’s Pointstreak Hitter of the Week.
Five consecutive multi-hit games meant Gonzalez essentially ran away with this week’s top hitting honors. The Diablos’ shortstop was a spectacular 17-for-24 (.708) at the plate, batting from the leadoff position. Gonzalez doubled five times, tripled once and drove home four runs.
Easily the most impressive game for Gonzalez was on Wednesday against Laredo. In the highlight of the week, Gonzalez went 5-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a pair of RBI and a walk. The Diablos lost the ballgame, but won four of their six games this week, largely thanks to their shortstop’s bat.
