The Bees are trying to find their way out of the .500 category, but June didn't help as they went exactly .500, finishing the month with 12 wins, and 12 losses. The Bees were able to collect a four-game win streak, but the streak was following a three-game losing streak. The cardiac kids are going to keep the surprise endings, and will have to grind out the final two months of the season if they want a shot at a Midwest League title.


PLAYER OF THE MONTH: Wade Wass, Catcher

Wass had a nice month at the plate, but was just as big an impact behind the plate, calling games well and giving his team a chance to win on both aspects of the game. Wass finished June offensively with a .310/.354/.483 slash, along with four doubles, two home runs, nine runs scored and 10 RBI. Wass also was a large part of the pitching staff seeing a 3.09 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in June.


PITCHER OF THE MONTH: Austin Robichaux, Right-Handed Pitcher

Robichaux is starting to find his groove and create a name for himself as a top prospect in the Angels system. In June, Robichaux posted a 2.12 ERA, with a 4-0 record in five starts. He held bats to a .225/.250/.270 slash and had 45.68% of opposing batters ground out. Robichaux finished June with a scoreless streak that lasted into July, go for 26 total innings pitched.
