Lyerly And Mullins Claim SAC Baseball Player And Pitcher Of The Week Honors
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba’s Craige Lyerly and Trevor Mullins have been named the South Atlantic Conference Baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week announced conference officials Tuesday. Catawba went 3-1 during the week, including a SAC doubleheader sweep of No. 12 Carson-Newman College last Saturday.
Lyerly, a 6-0, 175-pound junior third baseman from Salisbury, NC, batted .625 last week (10-of-16) with three doubles and five RBI. After going 0-for-3 against Pfeiffer, Lyerly rebounded with a 5-for-5 performance, including three doubles and three RBI, in a mid-week win at Belmont Abbey. The East Rowan High School product tallied three hits in a first game win over Carson-Newman and followed with a 2-for-3 effort in the night-cap victory. On the week, he also posted four stolen bases, including three against Pfeiffer.
Mullins, a 6-3, 215-pound junior from Jamestown, NC, hurled a two-hit shutout in a 5-0 win over Carson-Newman. The former Ragsdale High School standout, who transferred from Appalachian State, tossed seven innings where he walked just one and struck out seven in garnering his first victory of 2009.
The SAC Baseball Player and Pitcher of the Week is selected by a vote of the league’s nine sports information directors.
