PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast right-hander Darby Gilbert has been named MACJC Pitcher of the Week for his sensation relief appearance in a playoff game last week.
Gilbert, a freshman from Pascagoula, struck out 11 batters in 4.1 innings of relief and picked up the win in the Bulldogs' 10-8 win over No. 16 Meridian in Game 1 of their Region 23 qualifying series.
He allowed one run on four hits, allowing the Bulldogs to rally from a three-run deficit. Gulf Coast would go on to sweep the series and qualify for the NJCAA Region 23 Tournament which starts Wednesday in Fulton.
