College of Charleston sophomore Evan Sisk (Chester, S.C.) tossed six and two-thirds scoreless innings to lead The College’s baseball team to a 2-0 win over UNC Wilmington on Saturday, and was rewarded for his efforts with his first career Colonial Athletic Association Pitcher of the Week honors on Monday afternoon.
Sisk played a pivotal role in the Cougars’ sweep of CAA preseason favorite UNCW this past weekend, combining with teammate Tucker White (Sterling, Okla.) for a 2-0, six-hit shutout of the Seahawks on Saturday. The sophomore southpaw went six and two-thirds innings, and scattered six hits and struck out two to improve to 3-0 on the season. In the game, Sisk did not allow a runner past second base despite surrendering four walks.
Sisk currently leads the team with a 3.03 ERA, which ranks fourth in the conference. In 29 and two-thirds innings this season, Sisk has struck out 18 and held opposing batters to a .252 batting average.
The Cougars return to the diamond on Tuesday when they travel to Jacksonville, Fla. to take on North Florida in a midweek matchup at 4:00 pm.
