NEW HAVEN, CT - Alex Del Valle of Felician College has claimed Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Baseball Player of the Week honors for the week ending Sunday, April 19. Brian Craig of Dominican College was tabbed Pitcher of the Week, while fellow Charger hurler, Justin Moore, was chosen Rookie of the Week.
Del Valle, a junior 6-0 shorstop from Miami, FL, hit .464 in a 4-2 week for the Golden Falcons with two home runs, four doubles, seven runs scored, six RBI, three stolen bases and a .821 slugging percentage. He collected at least one hit in every game, including a four-hit day at USP and three hits against Caldwell.
Craig, a senior 6-0 righty from Shenandoah, PA, went 1-0 on the week with a 0.00 ERA in two appearances. He allowed only one hit with 12 strikeouts in 7.0 innings in a victory over Post. He also threw an inning of relief against Philadelphia and did not allow a hit or walk.
Moore, a 6-2 freshman righty from Wantagh, NY, went 1-0 with two saves in three relief appearances last week. He allowed only one hit with two strikeouts. Moore picked up a win and a save against Philadelphia, and a save against STAC.
Ray Keelan, Caldwell (Jr., OF, Barnegat, NJ) - Hit .571 in five games with seven RBI and two runs scored.
Albie Sanguiliano, Felician (Sr., RHP, Flemington, NJ) - Went 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA with nine K's in 13.0 IP.
PJ Rodriguez, Nyack (Jr., SS, Levittown, PR) - Hit .524 in four games with six runs scored, five RBI and five SB's.
Sean Stimpfel, Bloomfield (So., RHP, Jackson, NJ) - Went 2-0 on the week with a 2.25 ERA with 11 K's in 12 innings.
Bloomfield - In a 4-1 week for the Deacons, Bloomfield received solid outings from Sean Stimpfel, Matt Snyder, and Steve Godowski. Jon Walsh closed out two games in the week, recording his 4th save of the season Tuesday against Nyack. Clutch hitting from Jonattan Fernandez (2 HR's againstUSP), Ricky Maldonado (game winning triple over WilmU), Alex Sepulveda (2 run double over WilmU), and Chris Rosa (.412 BA) played large roles in the Deacons' victories all week.
Caldwell - The Cougars scored 17 runs on 17 hits in a 17-1 victory over Philadelphia Apr. 19. The performance marked the highest single-game run total for the Cougars since a 22-7 win over Molloy in the 2007 season opener. Junior Adric Saxon had three doubles and a home run while driving in six runs and scoring five against the Rams.
Felician - Senior 3B Dave Schoer has become the fifth player in the 10-year history of the program to score 100 career runs. He has exactly 100 in 168 games. Senior RF Mike Libretta became the 15th member of Felician's 100-hit club in his team's Apr. 13 loss at Philadelphia U. Junior SS Alex Del Valle homered in both ends of a doubleheader at USP on Sunday, a feat fellow Miamian Frank Quintana also accomplished for the Golden Falcons at Richie Ashburn Field two years ago.
Philadelphia - The Rams look to stop a recent four game skid
with seven CACC games coming this week, with two games against
University of the Sciences, three against Nyack College and two
against Felician College.
