Former Tyler Lee baseball standout Parker Bramlett, an infielder on the Angelo State University Rams baseball team, earned the West Coast League’s Moss Adams Player of the Week.

A redshirt junior at ASU, Bramlett is playing summer ball for the Victoria HarbourCats in the West Coast League, a wooden-bat league for college players. The HarbourCats are located in Victoria, British Columbia.

During the week of June 24-30, he went 8-for-18 at the plate, drew seven walks and scored seven runs.

His hot streak led the HarbourCats on a seven-game winning streak. Over 20 games so far this season, he has a .347 batting average with 17 walks, 10 RBIs, 19 runs scored and 16 stolen bases.

Bramlett’s bases-clearing double on June 30 helped the squad to their sixth straight win, a 10-5 comeback victory over Kelowna.

Bramlett earned 2019 All-Lone Star Conference first-team honors for ASU and was named to the LSC All-Defensive Team for his play at second base.

He hit .333 in 47 games with eight doubles, two triples, 34 RBIs, 41 runs scored and 17 stolen bases. Defensively, he committed just eight errors in 201 chances, and was part of 26 double plays.

Bramlett is playing shortstop for the HarbourCats, who returned to play Friday night after a three-day break in the schedule. Victoria leads the North standings with a record of 17-7, three games ahead of the Bellington Bells of Bellington, Washington.

Other teams in the North Division include: Port Angeles (Lefties), Washington; Yakima County Pippins of Yakima, Washington; Wenatchee (Applesox), Washington; and Kelowna Falcons, Birtish Columbia.

The Corvallis Knights of Corvallis, Oregon lead the South Division at 18-6. Other South teams include: Walla Walla (Sweets), Washington; Ridgefield (Raptors), Washington; Bend (Elks), Oregon; Portland (Pickles), Oregon; and Cowlitz Black Bears of Longview, Washington.

The HarbourCats have a weekend series with Bellington in Victoria.
