Former UA slugger Bobby Dalbec is hitting just .248 with 10 homers and 36 RBIs in the minors this season, but he’s caught fire over the past week. He’s driven in 10 runs over his past six games.

There are nearly 50 Southern Arizona products active in the minor leagues, and here’s a glance at how some of them fared last week:

Batter of the week

Bobby Dalbec, 3B, Greenville Drive (A)

You could continue to concern yourself with Dalbec’s high strikeout rate, but that would be missing the point.

The point: Dalbec is mashing the ball.

The former Arizona Wildcats slugger had seven doubles in seven games last week, highlighted by Wednesday’s outing in which he went 4 for 5 with a double, home run and four RBIs. It was one of his four multi-hit games during the week.

Entering Sunday, Dalbec was batting .283 this month with a .394 on-base percentage in the Red Sox organization.

Pitcher of the week

Lucas Long, RHP, Bowie Baysox (AA)

This is Long’s first season being used primarily as a reliever, but the Orioles’ Double-A club has used him as a starter the last six weeks — and with success.

Long, who won a College World Series ring as a freshman with the UA in 2012 before transferring, is 3-2 with 2.86 ERA in his last five starts. He took the loss Thursday against Altoona despite pitching seven impressive innings (six hits, two earned runs).

The Minneapolis native has a 2.75 ERA in 29 appearances (12 starts) with Bowie this year.

Better luck next week

J.C. Cloney, LHP, Burlington Royals (Rookie)

A string of six impressive appearances ended harshly for Cloney on Wednesday.

The ex-Wildcat ace, an occasional reliever for Kansas City’s rookie team, inherited a 7-0 deficit against Princeton in the sixth inning. Things got worse immediately as the first five batters reached base on two doubles, a home run, a single and a throwing error.

Cloney allowed six hits and four earned runs in the inning.

On the move

J.J. Matijevic, OF/IF, Quad Cities River Bandits (A)

August is ending just as nicely as it began for Matijevic. On Sunday, he was promoted to the Astros’ Class A farm team in Iowa, fewer than three weeks after he was named an all-star in the short-season New York-Penn League.

There, Matijevic displayed an ability to drive the ball similar to the way he did as an All-American for the UA last season. His 14 doubles and six home runs in 53 games were both top-10 figures in the NYPL.

Now he’ll get to play in the Midwest League playoffs with Quad Cities.

The big number

95League-leading RBIs this season for Darick Hall, a 2013 graduate of Sierra Vista Buena High School and first baseman for the Phillies’ Class A Lakewood Blue Claws. Hall drove in seven runs Wednesday, going 4 for 6 with two home runs.
