Myers Named NCBWA Baseball Pitcher of the Week
WINGATE, N.C. -- Catawba College junior right-hander Riley Myers (Salisbury, N.C.) is the NCBWA Southeast Region Pitcher of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA). North Greenville University senior outfielder Jeffrey Chandler, Jr. (Scottsdale, Ariz.) has been named the Southeast Region Player of the Week, officials announced Tuesday morning.
Myers posted a 0.00 ERA over five outings during the week as Catawba went 6-0 and claimed the SAC Tournament title. Myers logged 9.1 innings on the mound, surrendering eight hits with one unearned run. He walked one and fanned seven. At the SAC tournament, Myers pitched five innings over the final two games, both against eighth-ranked and top-seeded Newberry, and allowed just three hits with no walks and four strikeouts, bridging the gap to the closer each game. In the opener of the tournament, he got the win over Tusculum in relief.
Chandler was named the Conference Carolinas Tournament MVP, leading the Crusaders to the tourney title. He went nine-for-17 in the four wins with three homers and six RBI, scoring four runs while adding a pair of doubles. Chandler homered in each of the last three games of the tournament, going three-for-five with a homer and three RBI in the win over Erskine on day two. He had a homer and two RBI in the final game against Mount Olive to clinch the championship.
