Junior pitcher Bryan Rivera (Cida, Puerto Rico) of Saint Augustine’s University was named Atlantic Region Pitcher of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) on Tuesday, February 11, 2014, after a masterful performance against Bluefield State College over the weekend.
Rivera hurled a four-hit shutout in a 1-0 St. Aug win on Saturday, February 8. He recorded seven strikeouts and one walk in a seven-inning complete game. By winning the regional honor, Rivera is eligible for the national pitcher of the week award.
The win was the first for the Falcons this season. They will host East Stroudsburg University in a three-game non-conference weekend series at Optimist Park in Raleigh, N.C., starting Saturday, February 15, with a doubleheader. The first game starts at 1 p.m. followed by the second game at 3 p.m.
