Two Win Week Earns Frederick League Honors

 

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - After going 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA in three games last week, Georgia Southern sophomore righthander Ryan Frederick was named the Southern Conference's Pitcher of the Week for March 24th.

Frederick earned the win in the Eagles' 14-5 victory over #13 Clemson last Tuesday. The Springfield, Ga. native allowed just one run over three innings and scattered three hits and one walk in his first mid-week start of the year.

Frederick appeared twice against Appalachian State on the weekend and combined to hold the Mountaineers scoreless over 2.1 innings. The sophomore righthander did not allow a hit over the two outings and struck out a combined three batters. 

Frederick picked up his second win of the week on Sunday after GSU rallied from a 7-3 deficit with a seven-run eighth inning. He retired all six batters he faced in order and struck out two in the ninth inning to secure the series victory over Appalachian State. 

Frederick is the first Eagle pitcher to win the award since Chris Beck on April 2, 2012. Frederick and the Eagles will be back in action Tuesday at North Florida.
