It was a clean sweep for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks as RHP Ryan Flores earned the PURE Performance Pitcher of the Week and catcher Kevin Krause was named the PURE Performance Player of the Week. This is the first time this season that both the PURE Performance Player and Pitcher of the Week came from the same team…The Chicago Dogs earned their fifth straight victory on Monday. That is a season-high for the Dogs…Jake Dahlberg has tossed 16.0 consecutive scoreless innings.
