Patrice Briones (Pessac Panthers) is named WEP10. This is the second award for the left-handed pitcher. Against the Senart Templiers, a lineup full of powerful hitters, he was dominant again with 11 strikeouts, only 6 hits accorded and none free pass in a 9-inning complete game. He struck out the last batter with the potential tying run at first base for a 4-3 win (all three runs are unearned).
Briones is brilliant this season and is quite unbeatable with a 5-0 record, a 0.97 ERA and 46K in 46.1 innings pitched, “en route” to be named French Elite best pitcher?
The veteran, also a great coach and trainer, is in charge of a baseball development center for young boys and girls in Gironde, France.
