MIDLAND, Texas (ABC Big 2/Fox 24) – The Midland RockHounds won their first four games at home last week. A large part of that success can be credited to the play of shortstop Nick Allen.
The 22-year-old infielder was selected as Minor League Baseball’s Player of the Week for the AA Central Division.
Allen, who’s ranked as the No. 3 prospect within the Oakland A’s system, went 14-22 (.636) at the plate with a double, a triple, and 6 RBI over the six-game homestand.
The RockHounds improved to 6-6 on the season after winning their series (4-2) against the San Antonio Missions. Midland will hit the road this week to face the Amarillo Sod Poodles for another six-game series.
