North Division Pitcher of the Week: Noah Barros, Glacier Range Riders

Despite a recent skid from the Range Riders, Noah Barros showed dominance on the mound against the Voyagers on Saturday. The Pitcher of the Week threw six scoreless innings in Great Falls, fanning five and only letting four hits get by him. It was Barros’s first shutout start of the season, an 18-out serving that led the Range Riders to a 5-1 win. They are 9.5 games back from the PaddleHeads, staying well ahead of the Mustangs in the overall standings.






North Division Batter of the Week: John Michael Faile, C, Billings Mustangs

The Mustangs showed out this week, winning two three-game series against the top two teams in the North Division, and catcher John Michael Faile made the most of his time at the plate. He got seven hits, all of which went for extra bases, including five home runs. The power hitter hit two home runs in a single game twice, batting in nine runs for the Mustangs. Faile has turned into a reliable RBI man for the Mustangs, who are making noise in the division to stay ahead of the Voyagers.






South Division Pitcher of the Week: Buddie Pindel, Boise Hawks

Another week, another Hawks pitcher with a complete game. Buddie Pindel earns Pitcher of the Week with a scoreless nine innings, only allowing five hits and a pair of walks. Pindel also sat down seven batters on strikes, tying his season high in his second credited win as a starter. Boise sits right between the Raptors and the Owlz, with the pitching prowess to make a push for the division lead.







South Division Batter of the Week: Joe Johnson, 1B, Grand Junction Jackalopes

For the second time in two weeks, Joe Johnson of the Grand Junction Jackalopes wins Batter of the Week honors. In another high-scoring series, capped off with a 27-15 slugfest victory against Ogden, Johnson led the way with 11 hits and 11 runs batted in. Seven runs went for extra bases with three home runs and four doubles, staying hot as a threat in the South. The Jackalopes now sit fifth in the overall standings but are second in the current half’s standings.
