Wheeler Receives Third Texas League Award

For the third time this season, Tulsa Drillers outfielder Tim Wheeler has been named the Texas League’s Hitter of the Week. The award was based on performances for the period of August 22-28.

Wheeler joins Arkansas pitcher Matt Shoemaker as the only three-time winner this season of the weekly Texas League Awards. Shoemaker has been named Pitcher of the Week on three different occasions

Wheeler hit safely in six of Tulsa’s seven games this past week. Overall, he was 12-31 (.387) with 2 doubles, 3 homers and 6 runs batted in. His last home run gave him 32 on the season, tying him for the most in one season in Drillers franchise history. The total also leads the TL.

The Drillers currently own a season high six-game winning streak.
