LEC Weekly Honor & Stats Leaders

April 28th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A Plymouth State College baseball player has been recognized by the Little East Conference for his moundwork in two games last week.

Junior Ben DuBois (Franklin, NH) was selected Little East Pitcher of the Week after he posted a pair of victories for the Panthers last week. It is the first weekly honor for a PSC
baseball player this season.

A pitcher and first baseman, DuBois registered wins over league-leading Eastern Connecticut and Western Connecticut. He came on in relief Saturday against ECSU, tossing
three innings of scoreless baseball (2 hits, 2 walks, 1 strikeout) and picked up the win as PSC won in 11 innings, 4-3. DuBois came back the next day to hurl a complete-game
shutout over Western Connecticut, allowing six hits and no walks in nine innings while striking out five.

DuBois has lowered his league-leading earned run average to 2.77 while evening his record at 2-2. He is tied for 11th in the league in strikeouts per nine innings (6.84).
Playing first base when he’s not pitching, DuBois (.266 average, 3 HR, 25 RBI) is among the LEC leaders in RBIs per game.

Speaking of LEC leaders, PSC has several other players ranked in the conference statistical leaders. Senior OF Mark Thompson (Manchester, NH), who is continuing his
assault on the PSC record books, is ranked in batting (.397), hits (1.50/gm), and doubles (0.34/gm). Junior CF Josh Egan (Sharon, MA) shows up in batting (.388), hits (1.50/gm),
and home runs (0.23/gm), sophomore SS Todd Steffanides (Fitchubrg, MA) appears in runs scored (1.03/gm) and stolen bases (0.47/gm), and junior DH Mike Bence (Warwick, RI)
in ranked in batting (.382) and hits (1.26/gm).

While DuBois leads the league in ERA, three other PSC pitchers are listed in the LEC rankings. Senior Drew Shields (Pittsburgh, PA) and sophomore Brian Neff (Salinas, CA)
both have 4-2 records and are among the leaders in wins and winning percentage, and senior Sean Walsh (Laconia, NH) is tied for the league lead with four saves.

PSC plays non-conference games Wednesday (Apr. 29) at Salem State (3:30 p.m.) and Thursday (Apr. 30) at Franklin Pierce (3:30 p.m.), then wraps up the regular season
Saturday (May 2) at home against defending NCAA champion Southern Maine (1:00 p.m.).
