Pitcher of the Week Nominee: Colton Williams – LHP – 6-5 – 220 – Houston, TX
Weekly totals: 1 G/1 GS, 1-0, 7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 18 K

– Limited the Tigers hitters to a .185 batting average in seven innings
– Led a Drovers staff that finished with a 3-0 record and a 0.00 ERA

Drovers Pitcher Colton Williams said “Locating off speed and throwing the curveball at two different speeds was the big thing. Pitching is just disrupting the hitters timing, they were a team that likes to cheat the fastball so I kept them off of the fastball by mixing up speeds well and attacking both sides of the plate. In all reality the strikeouts are just a plus. I’m just trying to secure a win for my team each time I take the mound.”

Key Notes Of Week: The Drovers had a great conference series as they would finish off their second series win of the year. USAO pitching was ready to play as they would dominate as a whole. The Drovers staff would finish a 0.00 ERA over a span of 23 innings. The Drovers starting pitching shined in the weekend combining for 41 strikeouts throughout the series. The offense for USAO would come together and have 22 hits on the weekend. The offense would finish with 9 extra base hits, including 2 home runs.
