Ind.) of the Lake County Corn Dogs has earned Northern League Player of the Week, while Steve Washilewski (Ball State[Kansas] / Dyer, Ind.) of the Northwest Indiana Oilmen has repeated as NL Pitcher of the Week, earning the honor for the second consecutive week.

Washilewski scattered nine hits over seven shutout innings while striking out four and walking none in his start this week, which came in the team’s 7-1 road victory over Elkhart County on Sunday. He earned the victory thanks to the stellar start.
