Jared Young had a heck of a night playing second base for the class-A Eugene Emeralds when he had four hits, including a double, in a 10-5 loss to the Everett AquaSox.  

But that was last week. 

Missed it by that much.

But then the next week began and everything old was Young again as Young earned Caned Baseball Network Player of the Week for Week XXII.

Young lined out to left in the first, hit a line-drive home to right centre in the third for a 2-0 lead, singled to right in a run in the four-run fifth, singled to right in the four-run sixth and in the eighth hit his fifth double, this one to centre.

_ Batting second and playing second, Young had a pair of hits in a 12-4 win over the
Salem-Keizer Volcanoes before 2,474 at Volcanoes Stadium. Young singled on a line drive to right in the third and singled to right in the seventh to knock in a run in the six-run explosion. He went 2-for-5 on the night.

_ Batting second and playing second, Young was 4-for-5 in an 8-3 win against Salem-Keizer in front of 2,195 at Volcanoes Stadium.
