The American Association of Independent Professional Baseball has announced that Kansas City T-Bones pitcher Trent Lare has been selected as the Pointstreak Pitcher of the Week for the week ending July 31.
Since joining the T-Bones Lare is 3-0 with a 3.31 ERA over 15 appearances, two starts. He has allowed only 28 hits while striking out 28 and walking eight in 35 and one-thirds innings. The Emporia State product spent the 2009 and 2010 seasons in the New York Yankees organization, winning back-to-back Florida State League titles with Class A Tampa.
Lare is the third T-Bones player to earn weekly honors this season, joining outfielder Ray Sadler (July 24) and infielder Rico Washington (May 15).
Kansas City welcomes the Sioux City Explorers (37-36) to town for a three-game series that opens Tuesday night. First pitch is set for 7:05.
