The International League announced today that Columbus OF Jordan Brown has been named the league’s Batter of the Week for the week of May 18-24. It’s Brown’s first award of the season and the second for Columbus (Matt LaPorta, April 20-26).

Brown banged out a league-best 14 hits for the week and was at or near the top of the league in several other offensive categories, posting a .519 batting average (2nd), 3 home runs (T2nd), 7 RBI (T3rd), 6 runs scored (T4th), 6 extra-base hits (T1st), and a 1.000 slugging percentage (T1st). He hit safely in all six games, including two three-hit performances and a 4-for-4 effort yesterday at Buffalo. Among his hits Sunday were two solo home runs, giving him his first multi-homer game of the season. Brown now owns the 3rd-best batting average in the International League (.368) as well as the 3rd-best slugging percentage (.654). His 23 extra-base hits are tied for 3rd in the league.
