Sportsman of the Week Ending 8/20/2023
Late summer sports continue to be fun in the sports landscape but again it's baseball that had the story. Seattle Mariners phenom Julio Rodriguez reset the record books for success at the plate. Rodriguez absolutely mashed pitching with four consecutive four hit (or more) games. Four game stretch, 17 hits. including 2 doubles, 2 home runs, five runs, and 8 RBI. In the "other" three games that week he was 4-15 (not too shabby) with 3 more doubles. Oh, and he stole 6 bases. Probably most important his team went 6-1, taking three huge games from their rival (and defending Champion) Houston Astros in a sweep. They're going to rattle the postseason and the leader is their superstar, Julio Rodriguez is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
