Brown Claims SAC AstroTurf Pitcher of Week Honors
ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- Catawba right-handed pitcher Greg Brown was named the South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Baseball Pitcher of the Week, while Lenoir-Rhyne outfielder Clayton Jeffries was named AstroTurf Baseball Player of the Week for games played April 1 through April 8. It was announced by the conference office on Tuesday.
Brown, a sophomore from Lexington, N.C., put two stellar outings together last week and posted a 2-0 record. He threw seven and two-thirds innings of no-hit baseball in his win over Barton, finishing the day allowing just one run on one hit with 11 strikeouts. Brown then picked up a SAC win over Queens when he returned to the mound in relief. He threw four scoreless innings against the Royals, allowing just three hits with five punch-outs. He finished the week allowing one run on four hits with 16 strikeouts in 11.2 innings on the hill.
Jeffries, a senior from Lakeland, Fla., led the Bears to an impressive 4-1 week, including a three-game sweep of SAC foe Mars Hill. He batted .556 for the week with a double, a home run, seven runs scored and 11 RBIs. He also had an on-base percentage of .625 and a slugging percentage of .778.
This is Jeffries’ first Player of the Week honor this season, while this the first Pitcher of the Week honor for Brown.
