Toppel walked six times and was hit by a pitch four times to go with his 12 hits, bringing his on-base percentage up to .529.

The MCL Pitcher of the Week is the Northwest Indiana Oilmen’s Richard Yelnick. Yelnick (Trinity Christian / New Lenox, Ill.) pitched six scoreless innings to help Northwest Indiana secure a win over the first place Bloomington Bobcats Thursday. He gave up only three hits and struck out eight in a 17-1 win for the Oilmen.
