Reno Aces outfielder Matt Szczur has been named the Pacific Coast League’s Player of the Week for the period of May 27 – June 2, the League Office announced Monday.

He led the Pacific Coast league in Average (.545), Slugging percentage (1.000), On-base plus slugging (1.538) and was second in RBI. Szczur is the third Aces player to win the award this season, joining teammates Yasmany Tomas (May 20–26) and Kevin Cron (May 13-19).
