Bozied, Germano honored
Bozied, 24, batted .600 (9-for-15) with a home run, three doubles, four walks, four runs scored and nine RBIs in four games played during the week. He had a slugging percentage of 1.000 and an on-base percentage of .684.
Bozied tallied his first four-hit game of the season and drove in three runs on Friday. He followed that by going 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBIs and three runs scored in Saturday's contest against the 51s.
For the season, Bozied is batting .316 with 15 home runs and 54 RBIs in 56 games.
Germano, 21, made modern Beavers history by pitching the team's first nine-inning, complete-game shutout in a 6-0 victory over Las Vegas on July 15. Germano allowed just two hits and threw just 80 pitches, with 63 of those falling for strikes. In allowing no walks and facing just two batters over the minimum, he struck out seven in the shutout, the first of his five-year career.
The blanking lowered Germano's ERA by almost a run per game and accounted for his first victory with the Beavers in two months. Germano, who opened the season at Class AA Mobile and earned his first major league promotion of his career in May, is 2-4 with a 4.76 ERA (30er, 56.2ip) in 10 starts with Portland this season.
Germano's nod made it back-to-back honors for the Beavers pitching staff, with right-hander Brian Sweeney earning the league's weekly pitching award for the second time this season last week after going 2-0 with a 0.60 ERA (1er, 15.0) in victories over Edmonton and Sacramento.
Bozied is the first Beavers hitter to be singled out in 2004, but the team has collectively earned five weekly honors this season, with Dennis Tankersley accounting for the additional Pitcher of the Week nod. Prior to this season, the Beavers had not had more than three Players of the Week in a season.
