Newark Bears outfielder Jamar Walton and pitcher Leondy Perez were named this week’s Can-Am League Pointstreak Batter and Pitcher of the Week on Monday.

Walton went 10-for-22 with a pair of three-hit games and had 10 RBI during the week, while Perez picked up two wins and struck out 15 in 13 innings.

Through 19 games, the Bears are 10-9. They’ve got a four-game winning streak and trail first-place Quebec by three games. While attendance continues to be an issue for Newark, they are off to a better start than they’ve had in recent years. Maybe this year, they’ll be able to compete for a league championship.
