Monday, June 11th POD goes to Jason Leblebijian.

 

The Bisons had few candidates for POD. Alford looked good with 3 singles and SB, while Darnell Sweeney had a big day at the plate with a pair of singles and a home run; the 27-yr-old Leblebijian received the edge.

The former 25th round pick (2012) went 3-for-5 with a home run and 4-RBI batting out of the 5th spot in the Bisons lineup and playing 3rd base.

 

Leblebijian flew out to right field for the final out of the 1st inning. In his next at-bat, Leb came to the plate with the bases juiced. Fields (BB), Alford (single), and Rowdy Tellez (IBB) all crossed home plate on Leblebijian’s 10th home run on the season. Buffalo up 5 to 1.

 

The Arlington Heights, IL native singled to lead off the 5th inning and scored when Darnell Sweeney smoked his 5th home run over the centerfield wall to make the score 8 to 1, Bisons.

 

The 6-foot-2 infielder singled in the 6th inning. He was thrown out trying to score from 2nd base on a Darnell Sweeney single to right field. He went down swinging the 8th inning on his final at-bat.

 

Over the past 10 games, Jason Leblebijian is batting .303 with 5 runs scored, 2 home runs, and 9 RBI. He continues to be a singles/home run hitter as he had just one extra-base hit during this run.

 

On the season, Leblebijian is batting .268 with 29 runs scored, 3-doubles, 10 HR, and33-RBI. He owns a .341 OBP and is slugging .470.
