Kendrick scores another honor

Posted Jun 5, 2006

Howie Kendrick earned recognition as the top hitter in the Pacific Coast League for the week after hitting a cool .517 in seven contests for the Salt Lake Bees. He becomes the second Bee in three weeks to earn the honor, following Kendry Morales.

Howie Kendrick more than doubled his season homerun total by knocking four out of the yard in six games. He collected 14 RBIs and 10 runs while going 15-for-29 in his second full week back in Triple-A. He also let the game come to him a bit more in the week, drawing three walks after getting just two in his first 122 at-bats for the Bees.

Kendrick leads the circuit with a .394 batting average, is second with a .656 slugging percentage, and his .429 on-base percentage ranks third. Despite a two-week stint with the big league club, he is second on the squad with 37 RBIs.

Kendrick now owns a .363 average in parts of five seasons since the Angels selected him in the 10th round of the 2002 First Year Player Draft.
