Freshman Andrew Wilhite from Stillman Valley had an unlikely stat line from last week: he won four games between Satuday, April 4 and Saturday, April 11. What makes it even more amazing is that he won two games with his right hand, and two games with his left hand. He also won two of the games as a starting pitcher (both right-handed), and two in relief (both left-handed).
Wilhite threw a complete game on Wednesday in Stillman Valley’s 6-0 win over Oregon with 11 strikeouts, and also threw a 5-inning complete game, totaling 12 innings with his right hand, allowing three hits, zero runs, with 20 strikeouts and one walk.
In three relief outings all left-handed, the freshman ambidextrous talent went 2-0 in 5.2 innings pitched, allowing seven hits, one earned run, with seven strikeouts and three walks.
All total Wilhite went 4-0 on the week, throwing 17.2 innings, allowing 10 hits, one earned run, with a 27:4 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
If that wasn’t enough, Wilhite also hit .350 with a .500 on base percentage from his leadoff spot.
For his efforts, Wilhite has been named the first Porsche Exchange Player of the Week for the spring 2015 season.
