We've picked our best team from round two
11/26/2018 7:49 PM ET
 

The round two Brut Australian Baseball League Team of the Week is here!

Perth dominates the team after its big series against Geelong-Korea, while Canberra have a couple of selections after having no players in the round one team.

Check out our team and let us know the changes you'd make:

 

C - Alex Hall (Perth)

Hall's fast start to the season continued as Perth wrapped up a second-straight series win in Geelong during round two.

He went 6-for-16 with six RBI to earn a second-straight selection in the Brut ABL Team of the Week.

Hall homered twice and finished with five extra-base hits.

 

1B - Xu Guiyuan (Auckland)

Xu went 5-for-10 in three games during the Tuatara's rain-shortened series with Brisbane.

The Baltimore Orioles prospect doubled in game three and stole a base in the opener.

Xu's weekend lifted his batting average to .375 on the season.

Honourable mention: Zac Shepherd

 

2B - Tristan Gray (Perth)

Gray also earned selection in the Brut ABL Team of the Week for a second-straight round.

The Tampa Bay Rays prospect went 6-for-14 and drove in six runs.

Gray recorded three extra-base hits, including his second homer of the season in game two, and improved his batting average to .417 across the season.

 

3B - DJ Burt (Melbourne)

Burt was instrumental in helping the Aces take two games off Adelaide on the road.

He was 6-for-14 with three RBI and three walks, along with a stolen base.

Burt scored a couple of runs and tripled.

Honourable mention: Daniel Lamb-Hunt

 

SS - Mikey Reynolds (Adelaide)

Reynolds had a monster weekend for the Bite, going 8-for-17 with five RBI.

The infielder picked up three hits in both of Adelaide's win and went deep for his first ABL homer in game four.

Reynolds' big weekend improved his batting average by 108 points.

Honourable mention: Pete Kozma

 

LF - Michael Gettys (Adelaide)

Gettys, a San Diego Padres prospect, recorded the first three-homer game at West Beach in the Bite's 7-5 win on Sunday.

The 23-year-old recorded five hits across the round and drove in seven runs.

Gettys leads the league with four home runs after the opening fortnight of the season.

 

CF - Carl Chester (Perth)

Chester had a good time against Geelong-Korea's pitching, going 6-for-15 (.400) with eight RBI.

The 22-year-old homered and walked in each of the four games and tripled in game two.

On the season Chester is hitting .367 with an OBP of .457.

 

RF - Tim Kennelly (Perth)

Kennelly was another Heat hitter to take full advantage of GK's pitching troubles.

The Perth veteran went 9-for-15 (.600) with six RBI and four walks at the top of the batting order.

Kennelly racked up his 300th ABL hit - becoming the third player in the current league to do so - and blasted his fourth career grand slam.

Honourable mention: Kwang-Min Kwon

 

DH - Zach Wilson (Canberra)

Wilson recorded a hit in each of the Cavalry's four games against Sydney, finishing the series 7-for-15 with three RBI.

He doubled twice and walked a couple of times along with scoring three runs.

Wilson's hitting streak is up to six games ahead of Canberra travelling to Auckland to face the Tuatara.

 

SP - Shota Imanaga (Canberra)

Imanaga dazzled in his debut for the Cavs against Sydney on the weekend.

The left-hander struck out 10 and allowed three hits in six scoreless innings.

He did not issue a walk and retired the first 11 hitters he faced.

Honourable mentions: Luke Westphal (Melbourne), Josh Guyer (Sydney), Frank Gailey (Canberra), Kyle Glogoski (Auckland)

 

RP - Ryan Chaffee (Adelaide)

Chaffee bounced back from a difficult first weekend in the ABL.

He worked a scoreless frame on Saturday night before striking out five in three shutout innings of a game four victory for the Bite.

Chaffee allowed a hit and one walk to pick up the win.

Honourable mention: Tohru Kikue (Adelaide), Scott Kuzminsky (Melbourne)
