Starkville, Miss. – Rising Mississippi State sophomore right-handed pitcher Zac Houston was named New England Collegiate Baseball League Pitcher of the Week as a member of the Plymouth Pilgrims, the league announced Monday.
Houston finished the week with five hitless innings in three relief appearances. The righty struck out a league-best 10 batters, posting a 0.80 WHIP with four walks. The Poplarville, Miss., native owns a 2.57 ERA and a .118 opponent batting average this summer.
Due in large part to Houston’s efforts on the mound and his college teammate Brent Rooker’s performance at the plate, the Pilgrims own a league-best 18-5 record with less than a month to play in the regular season.
