The Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League has announced that Troy Scocca (Mohawk Valley) has been named the Player of the Week and Kyano Cummings (Elmira) and Phil Zdanowski (Saugerties) have been named co-Pitchers of the Week for the week for the week covering July 20 to July 26.
Scocca, who attends Fairfield University, has been named Player of the Week after hitting .375 with three home runs and 10 RBIs over the past seven days. The 10 RBIs over the seven-day span were the most in the league. Scocca had an OPS of 1.297, which was top ten in the league for the week. His 8.889 Runs Created were tops in the PGCBL.
On the season, Scocca is hitting .346 with six home runs and a PGCBL-leading 40 RBIs. He has stolen eight bases with 20 extra-base hits. Scocca’s OPS currently sits at 1.012 with an on-base percentage of .417.
Scocca appeared in 40 games at Fairfield this year, starting 27 of those games. He hit .262 with a .333 on-base percentage. He did not make an error all season.
This is Scocca’s second time being named PGCBL Player of the Week. He also received the honor in Week Two.
Kyano Cummings, who attends the Siena College, has been named co-Pitcher of the Week after a great start on Thursday.
On Thursday, Cummings struck out eight batters in a complete game win. The left-hander allowed just one unearned run, gave up just four hits and did not walk a batter.
With the great start, Cumminigs is now 5-1 with a 1.75 ERA, which is the third-lowest mark in the league among qualifiers. Cummings is two strikeouts away from tying the PGCBL record for strikeouts in a season (74).
At Siena this year, Cummings went 4-1 in 25 appearances. He posted a 3.94 ERA and struck out 42 batters in 48 innings pitched.
This is Cummings’ second time being named PGCBL Pitcher of the Week. He also received the honor in Week Five.
Phil Zdanowski, who attends the College at Saint Rose, has been named co-Pitcher of the Week after tossing eight scoreless innings in getting the win for the Saugerties Stallions on Thursday over Amsterdam. The right-hander walked just one batter and gave up four Mohawks hits.
The win was Zdanowski’s first of the summer but in July, he has allowed more than three earned runs in just one start. He has cut his ERA by more than a half in the month.
This year at Saint Rose, Zdanowski posted a 2.44 ERA in nine appearances, going 1-1 in those nine games. Opponents hit just .224 off him.
This is Zdanowski’s first time being name Pitcher of the Week.
