MINNEAPOLIS--Western New England junior right-hander Matt Fedor (Monroe, Conn./Masuk High School) has been selected to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week, for games played April 13-19. Fedor is the only relief pitcher in the nation to be honored.
The accounting major had a hand in four of WNE's five Commonwealth Coast Conference wins, recording a win in relief and earning three saves. He struck out five batters and did not allow a walk in five innings. He saved both ends of a twinbill versus Salve Regina, 7-4 and 3-2, on April 13, then worked 1.1 scoreless innings to beat Wentworth, 4-3, six days later. Then he entered the second game against the Leopards with the tying run on deck, but induced a game-ending double play to preserve a 6-4 win.
The Team of the Week is D3baseball.com's weekly honor roll, in its fourth season of recognizing the top performers at each of nine positions from the previous week. Players are chosen from nominations from their school's sports information directors. This is the tenth Team of the Week of the 2015 season.
