Bisons’ Chris Colabello named International League Batter-of-the-Week

The International League today named Buffalo Bisons 1B Chris Colabello the IL’s “Batter-of-the-Week” for the week of April 20-26.

Colabello hit .467 (14-30) over the past week, leading the circuit in hits (14) and RBI (10). The veteran also hit two doubles and three home runs, helping the Bisons win five of seven games on their roadtrip and take over the best record in the International League at 12-5.

Colabello’s great week took off on April 22 in Pawtucket. After the Framingham, MA resident invited a local high school team (Oakmont High) to the game, he went 4-5 with a double, a home run and four RBI in the Bisons’ 8-3 win over the PawSox. Colabello homered again the next day, driving in two more in the Bisons’ 11-1 victory in Lehigh Valley. The slugger’s third home run in four days came on Saturday as part of a 3-4 performance in the Herd’s 7-1 win over the IronPigs. Colabello finished up his week with a fourth multi-hit performance on Sunday, going 3-4 with the Bisons’ lone RBI in a 3-1 loss in Lehigh Valley.

On the season, Colabello is hitting .367 (22-60), the fourth best average in the International League. He also leads the IL with five home runs, 15 RBI and 12 runs scored.
