LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) — Allan Dykstra of the Las Vegas 51s was named the Pacific Coast League Player of the Week, according to a news release from the league’s office in Round Rock, Texas.

Dykstra dominated opposing pitching staffs this past week with a .450 batting average, two homers and 10 RBI. The first baseman also compiled a .900 slugging percentage while helping the 51s to a league best 13-5 record.

Dykstra’s .593 on-base percentage was the highest in the PCL last week, and his 12 walks for the season are tied for the fifth-most in the league. His first home run of the season came on April 17, helping Las Vegas to a 6-0 victory over the Reno Aces. The San Diego native produced six RBI during the 51s’ four-game series win at Reno.

Dykstra, 26, is in his seventh professional season since being drafted by the San Diego Padres in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft out of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C.

He was acquired by the New York Mets on March 29, 2011, in a trade from San Diego. The Player of the Week honor is the second of his career and his first since 2009 when he was a member of the Fort Wayne TinCaps in the Midwest League.

Brian Flynn of the New Orleans Zephyrs was selected the PCL Pitcher of the Week.
