12/03/2018 7:56 PM ET
 

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

Melboune take four slots after a series win over Geelong-Korea while Adelaide and Brisbane each have two representatives.

There is a couple of players who kept their spot after appearing in the round two team.

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

 

C - Mitch Edwards (Adelaide)

Edwards becomes the first catcher other than Alex Hall to feature in the Brut Team of the Week.

He went 4-for-12 with a homer and three RBI against Perth.

Three of Edwards' hits came in Adelaide's game two victory.

 

1B - Zach Wilson (Canberra)

Wilson makes his second-straight appearance in Team of the Week following an impressive weekend for the Cavs in Auckland.

He had an equal league-high seven hits for the round, with five of them extra- base knocks.

Wilson homered in both games of Saturday's doubleheader.

Honourable mention: Luke Hughes (Melbourne)

 

2B - Wade Dutton (Brisbane)

Dutton went 6-for-12 with three RBI as the Bandits picked up a series win over division rivals Sydney.

The utility opened the scoring in Sunday's finale with his first homer of the campaign.

Honourable mention: Dwayne Kemp (Sydney)

 

3B - DJ Burt (Melbourne)

Burt maintained his spot at third base in Team of the Week with another strong series.

The Aces' infielder went 5-for-13 with three RBI.

Burt blasted his first ABL homer, walked five times and stole a couple of bags against Geelong-Korea.

 

SS - Gift Ngoepe (Sydney)

Ngoepe loved every second of his first ABL trip to One Hub Stadium powered by Optus.

The former big leaguer homered four times and went 6-for-17 with five RBI.

His four homers were split evenly across the four-game series as Sydney went down to Brisbane.

Honourable mention: Mikey Reynolds

 

LF - Jared Cruz (Melbourne)

A monster night against Geelong-Korea on Saturday elevated Cruz into the Team of the Week.

The Aces' outfielder went 4-for-5 with two homers and six RBI in a wild win.

Across the series he was 5-for-10 with a walk and seven RBI.

Honourable mention: Chris Clare (Perth)

 

CF - Andrew Campbell (Brisbane)

Campbell regained his spot in the Team of the Week outfield with another solid series against Sydney.

He drove in the series-win clinching run on Sunday and all up finished 4-for-14 with three RBI and four walks.

Honourable mention: Hak-Jun Noh (Geelong-Korea)

 

RF - Garrison Schwartz (Melbourne)

Schwartz drove in a round-high eight runs for the Aces against Geelong-Korea.

He went 5-for-15 with two homers, in game two and three, along with a walk.

The impressive series lifted Schwartz's average to .310 on the season.

 

DH - Jake Bowey (Perth)

Bowey continues to make the most of his opportunities in a Heat uniform.

He went 4-for-9 with five RBI during Perth's series split against Adelaide.

Bowey blasted his third homer of the season and is equal-top of the league in RBI.

 

SP - Markus Solbach (Adelaide)

Solbach silenced Perth's league-leading offence to lift Adelaide to a game one victory on Thursday night.

The German tossed seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits and recording a franchise-record 14 striekouts.

This is Solbach's second selection in Team of the Week for the season.

Honourable mentions: Nick Veale (Perth), Jin-Yong Jang (Geelong-Korea), Shota Imanaga (Canberra)

 

RP - Hiromasa Saito (Melbourne)

Saito extended his scoreless streak to 10 innings with three shutout appearances for the Aces over the weekend.

Saito struck out seven hitters.
