Former Carolina Mudcats slugger Yonder Alonzo, who is now with the Louisville Bats of the International League, was named Southern League hitter of the week for the final week of the regular season.

Right-hander Matt Torra of the Mobile BayBears was the pitcher of the week.

Alonso (pictured), the seventh pick in last year's June draft out of Miami, led the league with a .458 average, 11 hits, four doubles, a .536 on-base percentage, five extra-base hits and six runs scored. He was second in slugging percentage at .750.

Monday's game against the Mississippi Braves was not the last chance to see Alonzo play in the Triangle this season. Louisville will be taking on the Durham Bulls in the first round of the Governors' Cup Playoffs, with Games 1 and 2 in the best-of-5 series on Wednesday and Thursday nights at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
