2. Aaron Blackwell, C/OF, #54 PBR West Virginia Class of 2018 Rankings


Winfield holds onto the number two spot but as with Bridgeport there are chinks in the armor. The Generals were 1-2 on the week losing to number five Nitro and Point Pleasant. Brett Morris (5-for-11, 3R, 6 RBI) and Sam Ingram (5-for-10, 4 R, 2 RBI) led the way at the plate. Nick Edwards and Peyton Gillispie were solid n the bump. The two combined to throw fourteen plus innings allowing only three earned runs.

2. Jeremiah Milum, 3B/RHP, #32 PBR West Virginia Class of 2018 Rankings


Wayne may be playing the best of any AA team at this point in the season. The Pioneers will be a difficult out in the upcoming playoffs. The Milum boys were the offensive catalysts in this week's 3-0 record. Wyatt was 4-for-8 and homered twice. Jeremiah collected four hits in nine plate appearance, scored three times and drove in two. Wyatt also combined with Cayden Ross to record fifteen strikeouts over eight innings of work while allowing only one earned run.

PBR Ranked Players:

1. None


Nitro remains number five after going 3-1 on the week. The Wildcats beat number two Winfield in extras and lost to a good Scott team. Hunter Stamper had a nice week at the dish (7-for-15, 3 R, 2 RBI). Mike Stone proved to be effectively wild as he worked around twelve walks in giving up only one earned run in thirteen plus innings of mound work. Stone had the strikeout pitch working in recorded sixteen punch outs.
