By: Brandon Vickrey

Chicago, Ill. – June 11, 2018 – The Midwest Collegiate League has announced its weekly honors for the week of June 4-10, tabbing Joliet’s Jeremiah Lebron (Illinois / Bolingbrook, Ill.) the Hitter of the Week and Southland’s Gil Loza (Moraine Valley CC / Burbank, Ill.) the Pitcher of the Week.

Lebron helped the Generals (5-4) to a three-game winning streak to close the week that included wins over Bloomington, Crestwood and Northwest Indiana. On the season, he owns a team-best .438 average to go along with two home runs and six RBIs. During the week, he had multiple hits in three of his four games, compiling a .526 average (10-for-19) while launching a home run and driving in a pair. He closed the week with a five-hit output in a game against the Oilmen, a 16-11 Joliet victory.

Loza turned in quality relief work out of the Southland bullpen on June 7 at Northwest Indiana. He was the hero of a miraculous comeback for the Vikings (6-2), who rallied from 10-1 down to beat the Oilmen 13-10. Loza worked 6 2/3 scoreless innings of relief, yielding just four hits and two walks while striking out six. The Oilmen had scored 10 times in 2 1/3 innings against the Southland starter.
