SUNDAY’S PLAYER OF THE DAY

TUCKER NEUHAUS (Wisconsin Timber Rattlers)
The 21-year old Neuhaus had a huge day at the plate for Wisconsin on Sunday afternoon, going 4-for-5 and driving in four runs with all of his hits going for extra bases. Neuhaus got his day started with a two-run home run to right field in the bottom of the first, then notched a two-out double in the third. He doubled again in the fifth, driving in Demi Orimoloye and then led off the bottom of the eighth with a solo home run to center. The offensive outburst from Neuhaus boosted his OPS to an incredible 1.471 through the first four games of the season.
