Bargas named NECBL Co-Pitcher of the Week

The North Shore Navigators’ Brandon Bargas out of the University of Oklahoma was named NECBL Co-Pitcher of the Week for the week ending June 20.

He shares the honor with Holyoke’s Maxx Catapano, which came after Bargas got two saves and appeared in three games out of the bullpen last week. Bargas, a freshman left-hander, retired all nine hitters he faced.

On June 15, Bargas got his first save of the year in a 3-2 victory against Lowell and set down two of his three outs by way of the strikeout. On June 17, Bargas got another save in a 6-4 win at Holyoke and in the process tossed a perfect ninth inning, striking out one. He also pitched a perfect ninth in a loss to New Bedford on June 19.

The Navigators have gone 5-1 since Bargas’ first appearance of the season back on June 15, and they were 0-6 prior to.

In addition, Bargas’ Oklahoma Sooners are currently participating in the 64th College World Series in Omaha, and they defeated South Carolina 4-3 on Sunday and will now play Clemson Tuesday night at 9 p.m. on ESPN2. Ironically, Clemson pitchers Dominic Leone and Kevin Kyle will be joining the Navigators after their effort in Omaha, as will Bargas’ teammate at Oklahoma, shortstop/pitcher Jack Mayfield.
