Rays laud Riefenhauser, Coyle for June boons

Durham reliever C.J. Riefenhauser and Bowling Green second baseman Tommy Coyle won Tampa Bay's minor league organizational awards for June.

Coyle hit .329 with 20 RBIs and 15 runs scored in 22 June games. He had a .441 on-base percentage and slugged .565. He's hitting .283 with a .407 OBP this year for the Hot Rods.

Riefenhauser was with the Biscuits in June and was 3-0 with six saves and an 0.00 ERA. He gave up three unearned runs on 10 hits in 17 innings with two walks and 18 strikeouts. Riefenhauser debuted for the Bulls on July 1.

Bowling Green's Jeff Ames and Andrew Toles won in April, while Montgomery's Enny Romero and Durham's Vince Belnome were the May winners.
