Armstrong's Bader - Conference Pitcher of the Week




Ethan Bader Named PBC Baseball Pitcher of the Week


SAVANNAH, Ga. - Armstrong Atlantic State University senior righthander Ethan Bader has been named the Peach Belt Conference's Pitcher of the Week, announced today by league officials.

Bader hurled eight innings of five-hit, one-run ball in Friday's 8-1 win over North Georgia at Pirate field, improving to 7-1 on the season. The Jacksonville, Fla., native struck out five in the contest, breaking the Armstrong career strikeout mark of 244, held by Chuck Christopher (1985-87). Bader now has 246 career strikeouts and the win was the 27th of his career, leaving him just two shy of the Armstrong all-time mark.

The Pirates swept North Georgia on the weekend and Bader's 74 strikeouts this season lead the league, while his seven wins are tied for second-most. This is the second PBC Pitcher of the Week award for Bader this season as he also earned the league's weekly honor back on February 11th, and the fourth career honor.

Bader and the Pirates will next be in action on Friday, April 11th, traveling to St. Augustine for a 7:00 p.m. Peach Belt Conference contest against Flagler College. The Pirates' scheduled game for Tuesday, April 8th, at Morehouse has been cancelled due to inclement weather.
