Hitters:


Carolina League
David Cook, Winston-Salem
.315 (6-19), 9 R, 0 2B, 0 3B, 5 HR, 10 RBI, 4 BB, 1 SO, 0 SB, 1.105 SLG Cook's biggest game this week came with one swing of the bat. The center fielder gave the Warthogs a quick 4-0 lead over the Frederick Keys with a sixth-inning grand slam on Tuesday. Unfortunately Winston-Salem's pitching staff couldn't hold the lead and the Warthogs ended up losing, 7-6. Cook broke out his power swing again on Saturday when he was a perfect 2-for-2 -- both solo home runs -- with three runs scored in an 8-5 win over Wilmington. The 24-year-old raised his home run total to 11 -- second on the team -- and his season RBIs to 35, which is good for third on Winston-Salem.


Pioneer League
Christopher Carter, Great Falls
.545 (12-22), 4 R, 1 2B, 0 3B, 3 HR, 9 RBI, 4 BB, 5 SO, 1 SB, 1.000 SLG
Carter has not only been hitting at an impossible pace to start the season, he's also come through in the clutch. The 20-year-old third baseman topped off his week with a walk-off, three-run home run in Great Falls' come-from-behind, 9-8 win over Missoula on Sunday. Carter also had three other hits in the same game, going a perfect 4-for-4. In six games so far this season, Carter is batting a torrid .545, has hit safely in every game and had multiple hits in four of those six games.


Pitchers:
International League
Sean Tracey, Charlotte
1-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 G, 1 GS, 1 CG, 1 SHO, 9.0 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 SO
The visiting Knights coasted to a 6-0 win over Durham on Tuesday, thanks to the first complete-game shutout of Tracy's professional career. The 25-year-old right-hander scattered six hits and a walk while striking out a season-high eight batters. Tracy is 6-1 with a 2.15 ERA on the road, and just 0-2 with a 4.98 ERA at home

Appalachian League
Alexander Woodson, Bristol
0-0, 3.00 ERA, 1 G, 1 GS, 6.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 10 SO
Woodson allowed two runs over six innings against Johnson City on Friday, and did not factor into the decision (Bristol won, 8-3). While his outing may not sound overly impressive, consider this: Woodson struck out 10 batters and did not issue a walk. The 20-year-old Puerto Rican struck out the side in the first and fifth inning, and fanned at least one batter in every inning but the second.
