Hitting

Rookie Trey Mancini (pictured) might be in the running for American League Player of the Week after batting .500 with four home runs and eight RBI last week. He produced enough in just four of the club’s six games to take the overall lead team lead in homers and RBI. He also leads the O’s – by far – in batting average (.364), on-base percentage (.417), slugging percentage (.988) and OPS (1.371). His gaudy numbers juiced the team’s combined .267 batting average and .317 OBP, but several other key players  had solid weeks, including Jonathan Schoop (.409), J.J. Hardy (.368), Wellington Castillo (.333) and Chris Davis (.304).  There were still times when scoring was a struggle, but two big offensive eruptions helped the Orioles average 5.5 runs per game.
