Matt Young POTW 8

Turks PoTW Week 8

Congratulations to RHP Matt Young (Oklahoma City) being named Turks Player of the Week 8. Young pitched well for the Turks in the final week of the season. In two starts Young threw 11 innings, took a no decision and a tough-luck 2-1 loss for an 0-1 record.   He allowed just 8 hits, one earned run, striking out 13 and walking 5.

Young will be a senior for Oklahoma City where he had an undefeated regular season this year suffering his only loss in the NAIA World Series. Matt was solid in his two summers with the Turks and wish him all the best in his baseball and other pursuits.

Joe Lytle Player of the Week 7

Congratulations to Joe Lytle in being named Turks Player of the Week 7. In four games last week, Joe Lytle (Oklahoma City) smacked eight hits in his 17 at-bats to record a .471 batting average. Three of Lytle’s eight hits went for extra bases, including a game-winning, three-run homer against the Front Royal Cardinals. With the fantastic week, Lytle has raised his batting average to a respectable .310 on the season. 

Jacob Ramos Player of the Week 6

Turks pitcher Jacob Ramos fired four shutout innings and earned a victory last week to garner Turks Player of the Week honors. Ramos used a debilitating fastball and slider combination to strike out eight of his 15 batters faced, while allowing just two hits and two walks over that span. He’s been lights out in his last five appearances as the electric right-hander has thrown 8.2 shutout innings and struck out 15 after a couple of rough early season outings.

Bryan Arias Player of Week 5

Congratulations to Bryan Arias for being named Turks Player of the Week 5.  Arias led the Valley League in home runs (2) and RBIs (7) last week and he did so in about a 30-minute span. The UTSA product mashed two long balls and seven RBIs in a 10-5 win over Winchester. Arias ripped a two-run blast in the first inning and a grand slam in the second inning as he crowned himself our Turks Player of the Week with a dominant performance against the Royals. 

Tony Beam Player of the Week 4

Congratulations to Tony Beam for being named Turks Player of the Week 4. After a slow start to the season, Tony Beam has been tearing the cover off the ball the past three weeks. The right-handed swinger is hitting .455 with a team-leading five RBIs in the past seven days. Beam is an infielder’s nightmare as opposing third basemen and shortstops are becoming accustomed to watching helplessly as the powerful catcher scorches base hits in between them.
