Tyler Wilson is Warrior Watch’s Male Athlete of the Week for the week ending on Saturday, May 13th. Last week Tyler had his first start at pitching this season against Saint Joseph’s Academy. Wilson threw five innings and allowed only two earned runs and two unearned, walking only two batters and striking out five. He also came up big for the Warriors offensively with a double. Over the week, Tyler had four hits and six RBIs in four games. He got the win pitching against Saint Joseph’s Academy and came up with a big save late in the game against Glendale. Junior teammate Isaac Tiracorda reflected on Wilson’s performance, “Tyler struggled a bit at the beginning of the season with a lot of strikeouts but now it seems like he has a double almost every game and is third on the team in RBIs.”
