USciences Dan McMahon Honored as NCBWA Division II National Pitcher of the Week
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (March 15, 2012) – University of the Sciences junior right-handed pitcher Dan McMahon has been named as the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Division II National Pitcher of the Week for the period ending March 11.
McMahon's selection marks the first time in Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) history that a baseball player representing the conference has been honored as a National Pitcher or Player of the Week by the NCBWA.
McMahon tossed a 12-inning complete game with just 131 pitches while allowing two hits and one earned run in a 5-2 win over St. Rose on March 9. He fanned 10 while walking only four.
The 12-inning effort snapped the record for longest complete game in UScience annals, surpassing an 11.1 inning performance by Homer Cutsler in 1942 against Swarthmore College.
The junior leads the Devils with a 1.33 earned run average and 23 strikeouts in 27 innings pitched. He has limited opposing hitters to just a .208 average this season.
