(WMC) - Memphis Redbirds outfielder Tommy Pham was named Pacific Coast League Player of the Week for the week of August 4-10.

Pham hit .500 (14-28) with two home runs, seven RBIs (runs batted in), 10 runs scored and four stolen bases in seven games during the week. Pham had combined 4-5 performances over the weekend, including a game where he collected four hits, four runs and four RBIs.

Pham is hitting .345 this season with nine home runs and 36 RBIs in limited playing time. Since May 3, Pham is hitting .377 (86-228), the highest average for any AAA player in that span.
