Sanford Mainers Trevor LaBonte Takes Home Pitcher of the Week Award
SANFORD - Due to his spectacular start last Tuesday against the Upper Valley Nighthawks, Trevor LaBonte (York, Maine/Maryland) was recognized as the Week Six NECBL Pitcher of the Week.
LaBonte kept opposition bats off-balance throughout his 7.1 inning start and kept hitters from getting comfortable all evening long. He did not allow a single run and only surrendered two hits and one walk while striking out seven. LaBonte retired the first 17 batters he faced until Jack Zyska grounded a single into left field, breaking up the perfect game and denying the young right-hander of a shot at Mainers history.
After Drew DeMartino (Pittsfield, Mass./Hartford) and Darren Williams (Maysville, Ky./Eastern Kentucky) made the NECBL Honor Roll twice, LaBonte represents the first Moose to win the top weekly prize in 2019.
Before the young right-hander makes his next start, the Mainers take the field at Goodall Park tonight at 6:30 PM for their second matchup with the Martha's Vineyard Sharks. You can catch all the action on the Patriot Subaru Sanford Mainers Radio Network powered by the NECBL Broadcast Network with Ryan Zimmerman on the play-by-play call. Until then, stay connected with all things Moose by visiting sanfordmainers.com and following the team on social media.
