FOREST, VA-Hampden-Sydney freshman pitcher Chase Mayberry (Appomattox, VA/Appomattox) has been named this week's Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Pitcher of the Week for his impressive performance on Saturday.
The rookie is the second straight first-year pitcher to claim the ODAC's weekly honor. Mayberry tossed a complete-game with nine strong frames in defeating conference foe Emory & Henry, 10-0, over the weekend. He gave up just five hits and walked one on the way to shutout victory, adding in six strikeouts.
For the season, Mayberry is 3-0 with a 1.34 earned run average in five appearances. He's fanned 30 in 33.2 innings of work.
Mayberry and the Tigers return to action this Wednesday, March 22, as they travel to Lynchburg College for a 3:00 PM game with the Hornets.
