The Moria first baseman put up some exceptional numbers the past seven days with a .464 batting average. For his efforts Brandybuck collected the Shire Conference Player of the Week Award.

He racked up 13 hits in 28 at-bats, 4 home runs and 11 RBIs last week in 7 games.

Thus far this season Brandybuck is hitting .250 with 5 home runs, 18 RBIs and 13 runs scored. He has 30 hits in 120 at-bats and has played in 33 games.
