Mercer's Askew named SoCon pitcher of the week
SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Senior pitcher Ryan Askew has been named the Southern Conference pitcher of the week. The big right-hander was solid in his lone start of the week, throwing a complete game for the first time in his career. Askew pitched Mercer to a series-opening win over Samford on Friday thanks to seven strikeouts.
Askew is now 4-0 on the season and the Bears are 8-0 in games that he starts. This is the third time that Askew has been named the conference pitcher of the week.
The Mercer Bears are back on the field Tuesday when they travel to Atlanta to take on Georgia State.
