Week 4 Player and Pitcher of the Week Named

During each week of the 2019 PGCBL season, the league office will recognize one position player and one pitcher as the League's Player and Pitcher of the Week. In the final week of the July, the top-hitting team in the league provided another offensive standout, while the current leaders in the West Division got a stellar performance on the mound.

The Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League is pleased to announce the selection of Mohawk Valley's Joseph Carpenter (Delaware) as the PGCBL Player of the Week, and Geneva's Jacob Land (Adrian) as the PGCBL Pitcher of the Week.

Mohawk Valley has claimed three of the four Player of the Week awards this season, as Carpenter joins Dylan Klock (St. Thomas Aquinas) and Nick Cimillo (Manhattan) on the Diamond Dawgs' roster. Land is the first player from the Geneva Red Wings to earn a weekly award this season, and becomes the fourth pitcher in franchise history to be so honored. The last Pitcher of the Week from the Red Wings came in the first week of 2018, when Sean Lubreski (NJIT) was recognized.

Carpenter had a monster week at the plate for the 14-10 Diamond Dawgs, hitting .500 (10-for-20) with 12 runs batted in. The infielder hit safely in each of Mohawk Valley's seven games on the week, stretching his hit streak to 12 games. The Cornwall, Pennsylvania native drove in multiple runs in four of the seven games, which saw the Diamond Dawgs go 5-2. His top performance on the week saw him go 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBIs on Tuesday, when Mohawk Valley claimed a 12-1 victory over Geneva. He also drove in three runs each in victories over Adirondack (on Monday) and Utica (on Saturday).

The rising sophomore is coming off a stellar season at Delaware, where he was named the Rookie of the Year in the Colonial Athletic Assocation and a Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American. In 54 games, the infielder hit .300 and drove in 37 runs, and added 19 extra-base hits, including five home runs.

Land appeared twice on the week for the Red Wings, starting with a scoreless inning against the Watertown Rapids on Monday. He then got the start against the Elmira Pioneers on Sunday, and was fantastic. The righthander tossed a complete game shutout, striking out seven hitters in a 10-0 win at Dunn Field. The win was Land's third of the season for the first place Red Wings, and dropped his earned run average to 2.38. The junior threw the complete game shutout in his first start of the season, and had not previously thrown more than four innings.

A native of Adrian, Michigan, Land just finished his first season at Adrian College. The righthander appeared in five games for the Bulldogs, tossing a total of six innings. In that time, he struck out six hitters, and recorded an earned run average of 3.00. His top performance on the season was two shutout innings and five strikeouts against Olivet on April 6.

The PGCBL is pleased to recognize the accomplishments of Carpenter and Land over the last seven days. The league will continue to honor the best performances in the PGCBL throughout the summer with both nightly and weekly awards.
