The Southern League has announced that Chattanooga Lookouts’ outfielder and first baseman Max Kepler has been named its Player of the Week for June 15 – June 21. This marks the second time this season he has been named player of the week after taking home the award for the week of May 18.

The Southern League All-Star produced a monster week, either leading or tied at the top of the League leader board with a .636 batting average, six runs, 14 hits, 22 total bases, four triples, a .704 on-base percentage, a 1.000 slugging percentage and OPS of 1.704. Adding three stolen bases, four walks and four RBIs, the Berlin, Germany native paced the Lookouts to a 5-1 record over the week, including the North Division’s first half title-clinching win over Jacksonville on June 18.

In the 8-6 victory of the Suns, Kepler went 3-for-4 with two triples, two runs, and an RBI.
His most impressive performances, though, came in back-to-back outings when he began the week with two consecutive four-hit games. Furthermore, the outfielder recorded four total multi-hit efforts in just six games.

After the All-Star break the Lookouts will be in Montgomery for a five-game set before returning home on July 1 to face off against division rival Birmingham for three games.
