After a rain delay to start the week, the RiverDogs went 2-2, splitting one game a piece with Rome and Savannah. They are now 9-14 in the second half of the season.
Player of the Week: Collin Slaybaugh
Slaybaugh recorded two multi-hit performances against both Rome and Savannah this week. The big lefty is now hitting .327 with a .740 OPS through 30 games so far with the RiverDogs. Slaybaugh is mashing from both sides of the plate, averaging .301 off righties and .429 against southpaws.
Pitcher of the Week: Chance Adams
Chance Adams was recently called up to the RiverDogs and he’s making his presence known. This week he made his second RiverDogs appearance, earning a win after pitching 2.2 innings of relief and striking out five. Through two appearances since being promoted, Adams has pitched 4.2 innings of shutout baseball, recording 7 strikeouts and a 0.00 ERA. Look for him to be promoted again soon if he keeps up this domination.
