Globe South: Players of the Week, Top 10 baseball and softball teams

High 5

Mike Bruemmel , Bridgewater-Raynham: The senior lefty’s third straight “High 5” appearance may be the most worthy. In the Division 1 state championship game, the senior tri-captain needed only 89 pitches to toss a complete game shutout against Nashoba Regional, allowing two hits and fanning 12. He also collected a pair of RBI singles in the 4-0 win.

John Carlson , Hingham: Eight innings of one-run ball in relief of starter Evan Flanagan from the junior righthander enabled the Harbormen to prevail in the 12-inning marathon that was the Division 2 title game, 7-6, against Auburn. Carlson also collected two hits at the plate and worked a nine-pitch at-bat in the 12th, resulting in a fly out to center that moved the eventually game-winning run, Flanagan, to third.

Cody Clifford , Hingham: After seven innings on the bench — he was lifted for pinch hitter Luke Ferris in the fifth — the senior third baseman re-entered the Division 2 final as a pinch hitter with two outs and the bases loaded in the 12th. He lined a Michael Vaitkunas offering to right field to end it, his second game-winning hit of the tournament.

Kevin Huscher , Middleborough: The senior shortstop got on base three times (single, double, walk) and scored a run for the Sachems in their Division 3 state championship win over Hopedale, 4-3, but his most important contribution was the final one. He bounced a two-out, bases-loaded single up the middle in the bottom of the seventh, plating junior Taylor Frazier and senior Sam Yost, to make the Sachems walkoff winners.

Cody Younger , Middleborough: Two unearned runs were the only demerits on the senior lefthander’s ledger in the Division 3 final, an eventual 4-3 win for the Sachems. He scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out five to cap an impressive scholastic career. After being blocked at first base his first two years of high school, Younger has been a solid contributor at the plate and on the mound the last two seasons.
