Catching up on some news that happened last week, former Saint Mary’s baseball star Patrick Wisdom earned recognition for a hot start to the summer as he was named Player of the Month by the Texas League for his play at Double-A Springfield.
Wisdom helped the St. Louis Cardinals affiliate go 16-10 in the month of June, hitting .309 with seven home runs and 23 RBI in 25 games. He won Texas League Player of the Week honors for the week of June 15-21 after going 9 for 28 (.321) with four home runs and 13 RBI during the stretch.
That hot streak hasn’t stopped just because the calendar turned to July. Over his last four games entering Wednesday’s action, Wisdom is 9 for 17 (.529) with a home run and four runs scored. He’s hitting .278 with nine home runs and 39 RBI in 61 games this year.
