Mansfield senior Jimmy Gilleran has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for May 2 through May 8. Gilleran is the 29th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the fifth of the spring season.

Gilleran’s walk-off homer against Oliver Ames capped a three-win week for the Hornets, which extended Mansfield’s win streak to seven games. Gilleran played a role in all three wins, as the Hornets beat Canton in five innings, battled back to beat Attleboro in extra innings, and then ended the week with a win over the Tigers.

“Jimmy has been an exceptional two way player for us this year,” said Mansfield head coach Chris Hall. “He dominated the offseason and continues to make the proper adjustments to take his game to the next level. Jimmy has had a variety of accomplishments this season, but his walk-off home run against Oliver Ames is one we will never forget.”

Against OA on Friday, Gilleran got the start for the Hornets and allowed four runs (three earned) in the opening inning. He would throw six scoreless from that point, striking out nine and giving up five hits, allowing Mansfield to fight back. After the Hornets got two in the third and two more in the fifth to tie it, Gilleran deposited a homer over the left field fence to earn the 5-4 victory.
