Monday, Commissioner Rob Neyer announced that the West Coast League’s Moss Adams Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week are Portland Pickles infielder Leo Mosby (UC Santa Barbara) and Corvallis Knights left-hander Sean Wiese (George Fox).
Mosby came through in the clutch for the Pickles on more than one occasion last week, delivering two walk-off winning hits, including a walk-off three-run homer on Tuesday. Overall, he went 10 for 21 with eight runs batted in during Portland’s’ six games. The sophomore-to-be appeared in 13 games as a freshman this spring for the Gauchos.
Wiese posted two strong bullpen outings in a pair of closely fought Knights wins. In those two appearances the southpaw threw eight scoreless innings, allowing only one hit with 10 strikeouts. The rising sophomore lefty went 4-4 with a 4.73 ERA with George Fox this spring.
