Week 8 Player and Pitcher of the Week Named

During each week of the 2018 PGCBL season, the league office has recognized one position player and one pitcher as the League's Player and Pitcher of the Week. In the final full week of the regular season, the league is recognizing two players who have had a major effect on the PGCBL playoff race.

The Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League is pleased to announce the selection of Watertown's Nick Bosma (Rhodes) as the PGCBL Pitcher of the Week, and Albany's Cameron Masterman (Louisville) as the PGCBL Player of the Week.

Nick Bosma was the only pitcher in the PGCBL to pick up two wins on the week, both critical victory in the quest for a playoff berth for the Watertown Rapids. On Friday night, the Rhodes College Lynx pitched the final two innings at McDonough Park against the Geneva Red Wings. Entering in a tie game, the righthander struck out three hitters, while allowing only one hit, and earned the win in a 5-4 Rapids victory. He then came on in a massive situation on Sunday, pitching the final five innings of Watertown's 14-inning affair with the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs. Bosma allowed just one hit in five innings, striking out eight batters in what turned out to be a 10-5 Watertown win.

Bosma has been a two-way star this season for the Rapids, driving in 31 runs at the plate and recording a 1.80 ERA in 30 innings as one of Watertown's most trusted relief pitchers. On the mound, the Overland Park, Kansas native has struck out 35 hitters in 30 innings, and has logged five saves. He has not allowed a run out of the bullpen in nearly three weeks. At Rhodes College, Bosma was tagged as an honorable mention All-American by D3Baseball,com in the utility category.

Cameron Masterman powered the Albany Dutchmen to the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season this week, recording six hits and driving in a league best eight runs. The Louisville Cardinal hit safely in all four of his appearances, including two victories over Saugerties that clinched Albany's spot in the playoffs. He drove in at least one run in all four od his games, and reached base nine times. In Monday's modified doubleheader with the Oneonta Outlaws, the Albany third baseman hit three doubles in a game-plus, driving in two runs in the top of the ninth of the opener and adding two more in the nightcap.

Masterman was honored as Albany's Player of the Year before their last game of the season, an accolade earned by hitting .366 with 27 runs batted in for the Dutchmen. Entering Albany's final three games of the season, Masterman is within striking distance of the franchise record for batting average, just three points behind current White Sox prospect Zach Remillard, who hit .369 in 2012. Masterman did not play in his first season at Louisville, but will return to campus with four years of eligibility remaining for the Cardinals.

The PGCBL is pleased to recognize the accomplishments of Bosma and Masterman over the last seven days. The league will continue to honor the best performances in the PGCBL throughout the rest of the summer with nightly and season-ending awards.
