Player- Matt Kemp, of, Las Vegas. Las Vegas manager Lorenzo Bundy tells his players to "knock the door down" to Los Angeles with strong performances.
Kemp is taking that advice to heart. This past week he batted .500 with an 11-for-22 tear, including four doubles and one triple in the total.
Currently riding a 14-game hitting streak, he's batting .331 for the season with three home runs.
He's also the only member of the 51's currently employing the running game with nine steals thus far.
Pitcher- Clayton Kershaw, lhp, Great Lakes. Kershaw is the first two-time winner of this season which befits the person who's rated the top prospect in the system.
He was superb May 29 against Dayton when he yielded only a single in eight innings. He walked only one while striking out seven.
He was just very good against South Bend June 3 as he worked five innings, allowing three hits, three walks and an unearned run. He struck out six.
For the season he is 6-2 with a 2.13 ERA. In 55 innings he's walked 31 while striking out 74. Batters are averaging only .178 against him.
Players of the Week- Kemp, Kershaw
