Players of the Week
Matt Maloney of the Triple-A Louisville Bats and Chris Coghlan of the Double-A Carolina Mudcats are this week's top performers.
Maloney was 2-0 in two starts this past week, as the left-hander threw seven innings and allowed two runs against Norfolk before topping that outing with a seven-inning shutout of Richmond. In the combined 14 innings, Maloney struckout nine and walked two.
Coghlan increased his batting average nearly 40 points in a week where the infielder produced multiple hits in five of six games, including three doubles and a triple. Coghlan has stolen a base in three straight games and swiped five on the week. Also, the former All-SEC standout has struckout just once since May 3.
Mark Holliman has been demoted from Triple-A to Double-A after posting a 1-1 record and a 5.16 ERA with Iowa. Now playing for the Tennessee Smokies, Holliman is 0-1 with a 12.91 ERA in 7.2 innings. In 2007, Holliman pitched for the Smokies and was twice named the Southern League Pitcher of the Week and participated in the Southern League All-Star game.
