PITCHER: Jake Stinnett – Brewster

     With July coming to a close and the All-Star game in the books, the summer and the regular season are coming to an end. Players have a short time to make their mark. A recent outing by Brewster pitcher Jake Stinnett (Maryland) earned him Coca-Cola Pitcher of the Week honors.
 
     Stinnett tossed seven scoreless innings against the Falmouth Commodores last week, striking out eight and giving up just one hit. The Whitecaps ace is 2-1 with 33 strikeouts and a 4.19 ERA.
 
     The Vista, Calif., native had an impressive season for Maryland, with 48 strikeouts and a 2.83 ERA in 63 2/3 innings. 
 
PLAYER: Rhett Wiseman – Cotuit – OF
 
     Western Division All-Star Rhett Wiseman (Vanderbilt), the Coca-Cola Player of the Week, homered and racked up three RBIs against Bourne in an 8-5 victory for the Kettleers. Wiseman truly shone Sunday against Y-D. Fresh off the All-Star game, he went 2-for-2 in an 8-3 win over the Red Sox.
 
     Wiseman, who hails from Mansfield, Mass., closed his sophomore season at Vanderbilt with a .289 average, 17 RBIs and three homers in 121 at-bats.
