After a red-hot start, Winnipeg Goldeyes shortstop Tyler Kuhn got some league recognition in the first week of the season.

Kuhn, a new addition to the Fish roster for 2014, was named the American Association’s player of the week on Monday, after his blazing bat carried him to an early league lead in batting average and hits.

The Fish are only four games into the season, but in those four games against the Amarillo Sox, Kuhn swung for a .524 batting average and put up at least two hits in each tilt.

That offence helped propel the Fish to a 3-1 series win over the Sox, with the only stumble being a mucky 11-7 loss on opening day. The Goldeyes rallied with three convincing wins: 5-2 in game two, a 12-2 thumping in game three, and a convincing 8-4 victory on Sunday.

Also leading the pack for the Goldeyes in the early going were outfielder Ray Sadler, who went .368 with two doubles, a home run and five RBI. In just four games, Fish hitters have already combined for six home runs, with infielder Jake Blackwood slamming out two, and Ryan Pineda, Reggie Abercrombie and Josh Mazzola all registering one.

The Fish are now in Laredo, Texas, where they will open their second series tonight against the Lemurs. Their road swing continues through Lincoln, Neb., this weekend. After that they’ll head home to Shaw Park, where they’ll open their home season against the visiting Sioux City Explorers on May 26.
