HAMMOND, La. – Southeastern Louisiana right-hander Mac Sceroler was named the Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week, presented by UniversalCoin.com, the conference office announced Monday.
The honor marks back-to-back weeks the junior from Denham Springs, Louisiana, has earned the weekly award.
Sceroler limited Nicholls to a pair of hits Friday and extended his shutout streak to 20.1 consecutive innings as Southeastern Louisiana defeated the Colonels, 4-0, at Ray E. Didier Field in the opening game of a Southland Conference series.
The right-hander walked two and struck out nine in earning the win (7-1). It was the first shutout of Sceroler’s career. Over his last two outing, Sceroler has allowed just four hits in 17.1 innings of work.
