El Paso, TX — As the days go by it just gets better and better for shortstop Maikol Gonzalez as he was named Pointstreak Hitter of the Week by the official statistician of the American Association. Gonzalez is the first Diablo this season to be named hitter of the week.
Over this past week Gonzalez has gone (13-for-26) with a staggering Batting Average of .500, over the past two road series against the Grand Prairie AirHogs and Kansas City T-Bones Gonzalez has racked up four doubles, seven runs, and one RBI, Gonzalez’s play has picked up in the home stretch of the regular season for the Diablos.
It’s no secret that Gonzalez’s recent success has helped the Diablos; the Diablos have won seven of their last 13 game this in this month of July, as the Diablos are now playing their best baseball of the season.
The Diablos could use another great week from Gonzalez as they start a three game series against the Wichita Wingnuts, in the Diablos first home meeting against the Wingnuts, game one is tonight, 7:05 here at Cohen Stadium!
