Leiningen Named NEC Pitcher of the Week

(Fairfield, CT) - Nick Leiningen (Millwood, NY) was named Northeast Conference Pitcher of the Week Monday afternoon.

Leiningen went the distance for the fifth time this season last Friday afternoon at LIU-Brooklyn, shutting down the Blackbirds on just three hits and one earned run in nine innings. 

The reigning NEC Rookie of the Year also struck out six and walked two in his strongest start of the season, earning his third victory and setting the tone for a weekend in which SHU took three of four games from LIU-Brooklyn.
