Pitcher of the Week

Cam Graham, Husson
(Sophomore, P - Littleton, Maine)

Throwing a complete seven-inning game, Graham gave up just a single walk in the final inning, while striking out six batters to earn the 3-0 conference victory for the Eagles - his second shutout win of the season. Just two outs away from a perfect game, the UMF Beavers snuck a ball up the middle into the outfield for their only hit of the game against sophomore pitcher Cam Graham. His performance led to a perfect 0.0 ERA and an impressive 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings. He also helped out defensively with three putouts on three total catches.

   
 

Rookie of the Week

Brandon Brunell, Husson
(Freshman, P - Lyndonville, Vermont)

Making his collegiate debut on the mound for the Eagles, Brunell threw a near-perfect complete game, giving up just a single hit. Brunell struck out his first batter faced and never looked back. His team helped out defensively to close the door on the Beavers and achieve a 9-0 win. By the end of seven innings, the rookie struck out five batters while allowing just two walks, in 25 batters faced, to earn the shutout win.
