Ferrero proceeded to shut down the opposing bats, tossing 7 Innings of shutout ball, striking out 9 batters and recording the Win.

Alec Ritch | Branson / Middlebury College | RHP: Alec put the Branson Bulls on his shoulders for this one, tossing a complete game 4-hitter against Drake while going 3 for 3 with a HR. Earlier this year, Ritch signed a letter of intent to join the baseball team at Middlebury College.

Matt Ladrech | UC Berkeley | LHP: The veteran hurler earned his second Win of the season last week, tossing 5.1 Innings against the University of Oregon. Matt struck out 6 while walking none and giving up just 1 Run.
