In Week 5 of the KCL, the competition intensified as each of the 4 teams played just 3 games. The Blue Caps, who started the week in last place, emerged victorious, clinching a flawless 3-0 record, and snatching 3rd place from the winless Bobcats. Although the Blue Caps had a promising week, it’s worth noting that the last time their success was highlighted, they stumbled in the following week. Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself. The Blue Caps not only tied for 1st in runs scored but also boasted the best defensive record, conceding the least number of runs.

Caleb Royer of the Blue Caps rightfully earned the title of batter of the week with his outstanding performance, going 5-9 at the plate, including an impressive double, triple, and home run, amassing 6 RBIs, 3 runs, and even a stolen base. On the pitching side, Ben Plumley of the Ground Sloths claimed the pitcher of the week title, pitching a remarkable 4 innings, securing the win, and allowing 0 hits, runs, and only 1 walk while striking out an impressive 7 batters. The KCL action continues with the next game scheduled for June 28th.

Still trying to figure out how to add a player multiple times if he has multiple top hitting streaks. But for now, a player can only show up on this list once.
