Week 6 Players and Teams of the Week

Teams of The Week

Here is a look at the teams that made the biggest moves or had huge weeks as a team for each division

Div 1: Crowder (7-0)

Yes, Crowder is in this week’s Top 10. But when you play 7 games in a week and outscore your opponents 98-12 it’s worth diving into just how crazy each game was for them. 

They started the week on Thursday, with a 31-0 win over Labette.  They played 7 innings scoring in every one of those 7. The biggest inning came in the 5th when they scored 12. On the mound Chandler Ashby threw a complete game shutout striking out 4 and only allowing 4 hits. At the plate is where things obviously get a bit crazy. Frankie Circello and Victor Plaz led the way for them (even though there really is not anyone that did not actually do good that game). Circello was 3-3 on the day with 3 homers, 6 RBI’s, and scored 4 runs himself. Plaz was 3-4 on the day with 2 homers, 9 RBI’s, and 2 Runs. 

The next day, Friday, they had a double header against Lake Land. They won the first game 13-0, behind Jared Viertel who threw a complete game shutout, striking out 7 with 3 walks in 5 innings, and Cameron Tissue (South Alabama) who was 3-3 in the game with a double, homer, 6 RBI’s and scored twice. The second game of the day was the closest game they had all week. It was a 2-1 win which they walked off in the bottom of the 7th. 

They finished the week with a weekend series against Indian Hills in which they took the games 16-6, 13-2, 11-1, and 12-2. In the second game (13-3), Crowder hit 6 homers as a team. 2 by Logan Chambers, 2 by Landrey Wilkerson, 1 by Frankie Circello, and 1 by Rod Criss.
