Stars' Rogers, Barons' Arroyo best in Southern League's week

Huntsville first baseman Jason Rogers and Birmingham left-hander Spencer Arroyo won the Southern League's weekly awards.

Rogers clubbed three home runs and had six RBIs Friday at Pensacola and, in his first three games after the All-Star break, was 6-for-12 with four homers, seven RBIs and five runs scored. He's tied for third in the league with 14 homers and is hitting .243 with 60 RBIs this year.

Arroyo threw seven shutout innings Thursday against Chattanooga, allowing four hits with no walks and five strikeouts. He's 7-4 with a 3.34 ERA this year.

The Stars have won an award the last three weeks, though the previous two were pitchers. Arroyo is the third Baron to win this season.
