Freshman of the Week: Chess Malone, Armstrong
Malone hurled 8 2/3 innings of three-hit ball, striking out six and not giving up an earned run in three Pirate wins this week. He pitched six innings of two-hit relief, striking out four, in the Pirates' 6-5 extra-inning win over Augusta State on Tuesday. He then hurled a scoreless ninth to save a 6-5 win over No. 25 UNC Pembroke on Saturday and entered the game with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth on Sunday, striking out back-to-back batters to get out of the jam, then pitched a scoreless ninth for the save in a 5-2 win over the Braves.
