Wrigley best in Southern League's week

Biscuits infielder Henry Wrigley, owner of an 11-game hitting streak, won the Southern League's player of the week award Monday.

Wrigley was 9-for-19 for the week that ended Sunday with three home runs, seven runs scored and six RBIs. He has a .405 average and has scored 10 times during the hitting streak.

Wrigley, who turned 25 last week, has a .286 average, 14 home runs and 65 RBIs this year.

He's Montgomery's first weekly award winner since Matt Moore won the pitching award in late May. The last Biscuit to win the hitter's award was Chris Nowak in June 2010.

Mobile left-hander Tyler Skaggs was the top pitcher. He threw seven innings Friday, allowing one run one two hits with no walks and seven strikeouts in a home win over Mississippi.
