Mud Hens

Hessman is IL Batter of the Week

Mud Hens third baseman Mike Hessman was named the International League s Batter of the Week for the week of April 21-27.

Hessman batted .348 (8-for-23) with three homers, six RBIs, and eight runs scored in six games for the Hens.

If statistics from April 20 were included, Hessman s week would ve been even more remarkable. He homered in his last three at-bats on April 20 against Columbus, and then homered in his first at-bat in Toledo s next game on April 22 for four homers in as many at-bats.

Hessman leads the league in homers (eight), shares the lead in RBIs (20) with teammate Jeff Larish and is batting .292.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre s Darrell Rasner was the IL s Pitcher of the Week.
