Week 6 Team of the Week/Hot Teams/Players 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

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M 5-1

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M is a team that never gets any recognition. This past week they broke into the National top 25 in part due to this past week. They lost Monday to National Ranked Cowley (20-9). But after that put their foot on the gas and finished the week with 5 wins, with four coming against National Top 10 Division 2 team Kirkwood. 

Cowley 9-20

Their solo loss on the week is one you might expect. Cowley is always a very good team and mixed with 10 walks on the mound they just fell short. 

Coffeyville 14-0 (5 Innings)

They bounced back after the first lost to run-rule Coffeyville 14-0 in 5 Innings. Tyler Small led the way at the plate for them going 2-2, with a double, triple, 4 RBI’s, and 2 runs. Not to be out done was Daniel Merrill who threw a 5 Inning No-Hitter with 1 walk and 2 Hit Batters striking out 6 along the way. 

Kirkwood 9-8 (11 Innings)

The first game of the 4 game series came down to the wire in walk off fashion. They channeled the “Green Light Special” as some call it and stole 12 bases through 6 different guys (Mathieu Valle (3), Tyler Small (3), Emile Boise, Jacob Ervin, Kevin Esquilin (3). 

Kirkwood 8-7

Another close one, this one was led by Mathieu Vallee (2-4, Double, Homer, R, RBI) and Dionysius Chialtas (2-3, Double, Homer, 4 RBI’s, 2 R). 

Kirkwood 13-0 (5 Innings)

Daniel Merrill was back at it again for the second time this week he had a CGSO. 5 Innings, 13 K’s 1 Walk, and 1 Hit. Jacob Erivn had 2 homers on the day while driving in 4 runs. 

Kirkwood 7-5 

To close out the weekend they took the last game off the bats Tyler Small (2-4, 4 RBI), and Zane Knox (2-2, Homer, 3 RBI, 2 R)

Teams of the Week
 Pima 3-1

OK so for the first time this season the team of the week is not one that had an undefeated week of play but one that made a HUGE STATEMENT with the week that they did have. 

Pima Hosted #1 College of Southern Nevada this past weekend to kick off their season. The took 3 of the 4 games from the Pre-Season Consensus #1 Team. With 2 of them being in a decisive manner. 

When Asked about his team and this past weekend Coach Jacome had this to say “I think our team is a bunch of blue collar hard working kids who compete.  Playing CSN was a great challenge for us and I believe we gained a little confidence in knowing we can compete with anyone in the country.“

They lost game one in a nail biter that came down to the end 8-9. They began to rally back in the bottom of the 9th with 3 runs but fell just short of the comeback. After a rough start from Wilson Bannister (4.1 IP, 8 ER, 4 HR) Darius Garcia came in the 5th and held Southern Nevada at will only allowing one base runner the rest of the game. Both Daniel Duazo (2-2, 2 BB, 2 R, 1 2B) and Parker Schmit (1-2, HR, 2 RBI, 1 R) led the way for the offence that again just fell short. 

Game two was a slugfest on both sides with a combined 10 extra base hits coming by the easy of 5 Home runs and 5 Doubles. It was won in the bottom of the 8th by a a Walk of hit by Terrel Huggins. 

The Next two games they won 7-4 and 17-9 and we will let the Pima Athletic Department tell you how those went
