Providence, R.I. - The Ivy League announced Tuesday that sophomore Mark Gormley (Milton, MA) has been named the Ivy League co-Pitcher of the Week for his work in leading the Bears to a 6-1 record. Gormley made two appearances last week, including one start, and gave up just one run in eight innings for a 1.12 ERA, and the team pulled out a four-game sweep of Harvard to stay in the race for a league title.
In the opener against Marist, Gormley came in to pitch 1 2/3 strong innings, giving up just a single hit and no runs to the Red Foxes. His pitching proved extremely valuable, as Brown won a close game 3-2 in the late innings, a comeback that would have been impossible without the bullpen. The sophomore then turned in a terrific start in the first game of a series sweep against Harvard, throwing the first 6.1 innings of a 7-frame game. He allowed just one run while striking out six, pushing his WHIP for the week overall below 1.00, and giving opposing batters nothing to hit, holding them to just .226.
The Bears will be back in action tomorrow, when they travel to Worcester for a doubleheader with Holy Cross starting at 4:00 p.m.
