If there were some positives to draw from a disappointing 2-2 split with Colby last weekend at Brent Gould Field, it was the play of sophomore 2nd baseman Jordan Dallalio and freshman lefty reliever Willy Gustin. Announced by the conference today, the two have been selected as the KJCCC Player of the Week and the KJCCC Pitcher of the Week for those performances.

Dallalio led the Saints in hitting on the week, posting a .550 batting average in six Seward games. He finished 11 for 20 overall while scoring 11 runs and driving in 4. His numbers in the Saints conference opening series against Colby were even better. He finished the four game set with the Trojans 9 for 16 (.563) while scoring 2 or more runs in each game. In Saturday’s double header with the Trojans, Dallalio finished each game 3 for 4 with 2 runs scored while knocking in 1 run in the opener and 2 in the night cap.
Gustin was a bulldog for the Saints this week, throwing out of bullpen three times in six days. On Saturday against Colby he threw 3 2/3 innings of relief giving them an opportunity to get back into the game by allowing just 1 hit and 1 run for the Saints. Originally thought to be out of commission on the mound for Sunday, Gustin stepped up and was called to duty late in the series finale against the Trojans and the freshman lefty tossed a perfect 9th, 10th, and 11th inning to pick up a win as the Saints pulled off the extra inning victory.
