Chicago Dogs infielder Cody Bohanek and Sioux Falls Canaries starter Seth Miller won the American Association’s Pointstreak batter and pitcher of the week for the week ending 8/20, the league announced Monday.
Bohanek led the way in Chicago’s key six-game series victory over the Cleburne Railroaders, hitting a league-high .545 (12-for-22) including a home run, three RBI and two walks.
With his league high 12 hits, Bohanek was on base plenty, stealing a base and coming in to score six times as well.
The Illinois native is in his second season playing for the Dogs after playing in both the Houston Astros and New York Mets organizations between 2017-2022. He’s hitting .243 in 84 games this year with nine home runs, 40 RBI and 13 stolen bases.
On the pitching side, Seth Miller put forth one of the better pitching performances of the season, going the distance and shutting out the Canaries ‘siouxland’ rival in the Sioux City Explorers.
Miller allowed just three hits and two walks across his full nine innings on Friday night at Sioux Falls stadium, striking out six Explorers along the way.
The right-hander is in his first season in the American Association after finishing his college career as Augustana University in Sioux Falls. In 13 games and seven starts this season, Miller owns a 3-3 record with a 4.19 ERA.
