Sorry no minor league report yet. It isn't something that you just throw together. It takes some time for Kelly Munro to put all the stats and streaks together - that's why it's an award winning report.
But we do have some news. Rainiers outfielder/first baseman Mike Carp was named Pacific Coast player of the week. It's not really a surprise considering the type of day he had yesterday in New Orleans. Carp ripped three home runs and doubled in his final at-bat to help Tacoma to a 16-5 win.
He finished 4-for-6 against the Zephyrs, with six RBI and four runs scored. Carp is the first player to hit three homers in a game for Tacoma since since Kevin Howard accomplished the feat at Portland on August 21, 2008.
Over his last seven games, Carp hit .452 (14-for-31) with four doubles, five home runs and 14 RBI, including a pair of multi-homer outings on May 13 and 15 .
Carp is tied for second in the league with 10 home runs, going deep at an average of every 13.20 at-bats, currently the fourth-highest ratio in the PCL. Over 35 games with Tacoma this season, he is hitting .303 (40x132) with 20 extra-base hits, 28 RBI and a career-high four stolen bases.
