It’s time for this week’s edition of Primetime Pitchers.  Every Tuesday, we'll recap the five most dominating pitching performances from the past week of baseball competition.

Why five?  Because most pitching rotations carry five players.

I should note that these are single-game performances only.  I don't have the math skills to pull off calculating weekly totals.

With that said, here's our list of Idaho baseball's Primetime Pitchers, from the week of April 10th to April 15th.  The performances will be listed in chronological order.

1. James Aragon, Jr, Lewis County

The co-op between Nezperce and Highland (Craigmont) had only played one game prior to Monday, April 10th.  But in a doubleheader against Whitepine League rival Genesee, the Eagles showed no rust, sweeping the Bulldogs for their first league victories in three years.  Aragon led the way in the second game of the sweep, a 17-2 triumph, pitching a complete game two-hitter with ten strikeouts.

2. Porter Higley, Fr, Buhl

Buhl put the rest of the Sawtooth Central Idaho Conference on notice during a sweep of Gooding on Tuesday, April 11th.  In the first game, a 16-0 win, Higley went five innings, and allowed a single hit.  He also notched ten strikeouts.

3. Dominic Holden, So, Troy

The defending 1A champions from Troy held back Kendrick 9-1 in Whitepine League action on Tuesday night.  Holden went the distance on the mound, throwing seven innings of one run ball (the run was unearned.)  He allowed just two hits, and struck out 15 batters.

4. Stetson Higley, Sr, Malad

Higley delivered a complete game, 2-0 shutout over Gooding on Friday, April 14th at the Glenns Ferry Wood Bat Tournament.  Higley allowed only two hits, while striking out ten and walking none.

5. Cooper Jones, Jr, Wendell

On Saturday, the Trojans earned a 4-1 win over perennial 2A power Nampa Christian at the Glenns Ferry Wood Bat Tournament.  Jones held a dangerous Nampa Christian lineup in check, yielding a single run on two hits with five strikeouts.
