The senior leader of the Independence baseball team continues to set the standard offensively for the Patriots this season.

Lohrer has accumulated an outstanding batting average in the 12 games played this season along with excellent statistics making him certainly a strong candidate for the Southwest 4A All-Conference team.

He is hitting .622, OBP .702, SLG .892, with as impressive 1.594 OPS. In 37 at-bats he has accumulated 23 hits, 14 singles, 8 doubles, 1 triple, 9 RBI’s, 19 runs scored, 7 base-on-balls, with only 5 strikeouts.

This is the third nomination for Wilson this season, however, he has earned it based on his on the field performance. Also, last night in the second game against Rocky River, Lohrer combined with Joe Minaya and Luke Chantry for a no-hitter in a 13-1 victory. The Ravens catcher Jonathan Causey walked and scored on a pick-off attempt at third base for the only run of the game. Lohrer pitched just one inning and was almost perfect, he tossed 10 pitches including 9 for strikes while striking out two batters.

Meanwhile, Lohrer went 1-2 with and RBI single, 1 run scored and was hit by a pitch in the contest. In the first game, he had another single and drove in 2 runs for the Patriots in their 7-0 win.

When we do the analysis on his batting tendencies he spreads the ball around to all fields fairly evenly. He hits the ball into the outfield 82% of the time, 18% infield, fly balls 21%, line drives 38%, and ground balls 41%.

The Mint Hill Times Sports Editor and sports writers would like to congratulate Wilson Lohrer as being nominated this week’s Featured Player of the Week.
