West Coast League commissioner Rob Neyer announced WCL Moss Adams Player and Pitcher of the Week honors for the week of August 12-18 this afternoon.
Earning accolades were Corvallis second baseman Jake Harvey of Oregon State and Knights’ ace pitcher Tevita Gerber of Dixie State of the back-to-back-to-back-to-back WCL champions.
Corvallis captured its fourth straight WCL title last night by beating Victoria 11-1, to earn the club’s 7th title since the league was established in 2005.
Harvey, a sophomore-to-be, went 10-for-23 with 2 homers, 2 stolen bases, 8 runs scored and 5 RBIs to earn Player of the Week honors.
Gerber won two post-season games, twirling gems at Walla Walla in game one of the WCLDS and the WCLCS finale vs. Victoria at Goss Stadium. Gerber posted a 1.42 playoff ERA and struck out 16 over 12.2 innings pitched.
Tevita, who will be a senior next spring, won a total of 9 games this summer, 7 in the regular season and 2 in the post-season, to lead all WCL hurlers.
