The Coastal Plain League announced today that Matt Corder of the HP-Thomasville HiToms was named Hitter of the Week, while Nick Logusch of the Wilmington Sharks earned Pitcher of the Week honors for the seventh week of the CPL regular season (July 12 – July 18.) CPL Players of the Week are brought to you by Trackman Baseball, providing players and coaches next-generation analytical data all season long.
Corder, a rising sophomore at Mississippi State, was a force in the middle of the lineup for the HiToms finishing with a .625 average in three games. In eight at-bats he notched one double, two home runs and two RBIs while scoring three runs. The utility player also showed a good-eye at the plate, drawing three walks to push his on-base percentage to .727 to go along with a 1.875 slugging and 2.602 OPS.
On the mound, Logusch was dominant in his week seven outing versus division foe Holly Springs on July 14. The East Carolina junior tossed seven shutout innings, striking out seven while allowing only three hits and one walk to earn the win. This pushed his season ERA to 2.03 with 20 strikeouts in 17 2/3 inning pitched.
