In the fourth July awards post we’ll look at the month’s best performances from the Bowling Green Hot Rods:
Hitter of the month: 2B Tyler Bortnick
- Hot Rods speedster Tyler Bortnick will probably never confuse anyone for a middle-of-the-order slugger, but he does his job well at the top of the Bowling Green lineup. In July he led all Hot Rods with a .341 batting average. He also scored 12 times, drove in eight runs and stole 11 bases.
- Honorable Mention: Cody Rogers, Bennett Davis, Gabe Cohen, Brett Nommensen
Pitcher of the month: RHP Scott Shuman
- July was not kind to Hot Rods starting pitcher, but several relievers posted standout performances headlined by closer Scott Shuman. The right-handed pitcher went 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA and two saves in nine appearances. Shuman struck out 20 and walked eight in 12 and two-thirds innings.
- Honorable Mention: Jake Sullivan, Deivis Mavarez, Alex Koronis, Aaron Dott, Tyree Hayes
