Lenoir-Rhyne University's Ivan Vieitez has been named the South Atlantic Conference Baseball Pitcher Of The Week, league officials announced this



Vieitez, a junior from Miami, Fla., threw a four-hit shutout over Newberry last Saturday in the nightcap of a doubleheader split on the road. Vieitez struck out seven batters as well in the 3-0 win against the Wolves.


Vieitez has won three straight games, all against league opponents, and has allowed just one earned run during that span.


Vieitez has a 3-4 record with a 3.67 earned run average, two complete games and 28 strikeouts so far this season.


Vieitez, a starting outfielder as well, was named the SAC Baseball Player Of The Week last Tuesday.


Vieitez, a first-team all-league honoree in 2013, currently leads the squad in batting average (.398), runs scored (18), total bases (54), slugging percentage (.524) and on-base percentage (.480).


Tusculum's Trey Drewery was named the South Atlantic Conference Baseball Player Of The Week today as well.


Lenoir-Rhyne (10-26, 6-16) returns to action this Friday against Anderson in Anderson, S.C., in a South Atlantic Conference game beginning at 6:00 p.m.
