In six games this week, Shoemaker led the league with 13 runs batted in and compiled a .526 (10-for-19) batting average. The Carolina League All-Star posted four extra-base hits and scored five runs.
Shoemaker's big game came in the opener of a three-game series against Potomac Monday night. Shoemaker matched a career high with six RBI. He finished 2-for-4 that night with a home run and two runs scored.
