NWAC PLAYERS OF THE WEEK - May 16
Eli Herrick, Puyallup HS, Puyallup, WA
Herrick turned in an outstanding performance against 7th ranked Everett going 7 innings and allowing only one hit. He struck out 12 batters on his way to a 9-1 victory. Among the top pitchers in the NWAC with a 0.63 ERA, Eli has not started very many games but when he’s in, he’s effective.
“As we get down to crunch time, we had to move Eli from his relief role, which he excelled at last year, into the starting rotation," said Bulldog head coach Mark Yoshino. "A one-hitter with 12 strikeouts against a ranked team is pretty impressive considering he hasn't started since mid-March. Even though he has not been a starter, Eli's numbers have shown that he is one of the top pitchers in the NWAC.”
