Not surprisingly, Tacoma Rainiers outfielder Mike Carp was named the Pacific Coast League player of the week.
Over the past week, Carp batted .515 (17-for-33) over his last seven games with four home runs, 11 RBI and 13 runs scored. He turned in five multi-hit outings over that span, including a pair of season-high four-hit performances against Reno on May 31 and June 3.
Carp has been one of the hottest hitters in the PCL for the last month and a half. He is in the midst of a career-high 21-game hit streak and hit safely in 37 of his last 39 outings dating back to April 23.
Going into tonight's game in Tucson, he is ranked tied for first in the league with 17 home runs, tied for second with 51 RBI and fourth with 138 total bases. He is now ranked fifth on Tacoma’s all-time home run list with 61 career home runs as a Rainier.
