YORK, Pa. – Salisbury University sophomore right-hander Brett Collacchi has been named CAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week, the league announced on Monday.
Collacchi pitched a one-hit complete-game shutout, surrendering a humpback line drive to right field, with one out in the seventh and final inning, in a 14-0 game-two win over Gallaudet University on Sunday. The Bear, Del., native allowed just two other baserunners – both in the fourth inning – while fanning five and throwing just 70 pitches.
Collacchi is 2-0 with a 5.40 ERA in five appearances, including three starts, this season. He has struck out seven and walked four in 11 2/3 innings.
Seventh-ranked Salisbury swept the doubleheader with the Bision, winning the opener, 11-4, and is 8-2 on the season, heading into a showdown with No. 5 Christopher Newport University on Wednesday at the SU Baseball Field. First pitch is slated for 2 p.m.
