Monday, July 12, Portland, Ore. – West Coast League commissioner Rob Neyer announced this afternoon that Corvallis lefty Sean Wiese of George Fox has been selected as the league’s Pitcher of the Week for July 5-11.

For the summer, Wiese has made 9 WCL appearances, logged 26.2 innings pitched and posted a 3.71 ERA. He’s struck out 28 while walking only 6 and is 1-0 with two saves.

The Knights welcome Driveline Baseball to Goss Stadium for a non-league two-game series starting tomorrow at 6:35 pm.
Corvallis finished the first half of the WCL season with a 18-6 record, which earned the Knights a playoff berth and a first-half WCL South title. Corvallis is currently 23-7 overall (5-1 in the second half).
