Ethier continues AFL domination

Ethier continues tear in AFL campaign

Andre Ethier is still tearing up the AFL.

The Texas League MVP collected at least two hits in four of five games last week, finishing 11-for-23 (.478) with two doubles, a triple, a homer, five runs and seven RBIs. Ethier began the week by going 2-for-4 with a homer against the Scorpions on Oct. 28. Then, after going 0-for-4 the next day, he rebounded with three consecutive three-hit games to raise his average to .389.

Here's how the other A's prospects performed for the Phoenix Desert Dogs during the week of Oct. 28 to Nov. 3:

1B Daric Barton -- The former first-round draft pick went 5-for-17 (.294) with two doubles, four runs, an RBI and five walks.

RHP Shawn Kohn -- In his only appearance of the week, Kohn tossed a perfect inning against the Javelinas on Oct. 31 to lower his ERA to 6.30.

RHP Shane Komine -- Komine pitched brilliantly in his lone start, limiting the Javelinas to three hits and a walk over five scoreless innings. The former ninth-round draft pick earned the win to move to 1-1 with a team-best 0.96 ERA.

LHP Matt Lynch -- Lynch made two relief appearances, each lasting 1 1/3 innings. He pitched scoreless ball in the first outing and gave up two runs on three hits in the second. For the season, the 24-year-old Floridian is 2-0 with one save and a 6.75 ERA.

RHP Marcus McBeth -- McBeth tossed two hitless innings in relief, walking two and striking out four. In four innings this season, he's 0-0 with a 2.25 ERA.

C Kurt Suzuki -- The 22-year-old Hawaiian performed well in limited action, going 3-for-8 (.375) in two games to raise his season average to .276.
