Titans Top Ten CPBL Performances for Week #4
With the 17U and 18U teams off the CPBL schedule and embroiled in what 18U Head Coach Denis Bailey described as“controlled and competitive scrimmages,” there was ample opportunity for the younger Titans teams to steal the Top Ten spotlight from the grizzled veterans.
They did not disappoint, based on their performances on the last weekend of May.
Adam Visram cruised to his third victory of the CPBL season—a complete game gem—in the 15U Titans’ 4-1 win over the Ontario Astros. Tysen Kushnir batted .500 on the weekend to build on his impressive statistics for the 14U Titans . His teammate Caiden Moncada continued his torrid hitting pace this Spring with another .400 weekend and Luke Adams delivered a quality start for the 16U Titans with 5 innings pitched and 5 strikeouts. 15U dual player Nick Halcovitch hit a home run versus the Astros to show off his slugging talents.
