Charlottesville Tom Sox (6 games)
- Hunter Gregory, Old Dominion: 0.96 ERA, 0.860 WHIP, 1.0 BB/9, 11.6 K/9 in 9 1/3 innings. Hunter was on the mound in game 2 of the finals, but had to leave due to an injury.
Covington Lumberjacks (3 games)
- Chase Best (Lawson State CC): Chase fired a complete game in his only appearance in the playoffs, allowing 6 hits, 1 run, 2 walks, and striking out 8.
