FAIRFIELD, Conn – Senior Nick Leiningen (Millwood, NY) has been named Northeast Conference Pitcher of the Week after a terrific performance over the weekend against Fordham.
Leiningen pitched a complete game shutout in game two of Sacred Heart's doubleheader sweep of the Fordham Rams on Saturday afternoon. The left-hander struck out three, scattered seven hits, and walked only one over seven innings. Leiningen also added a key pick-off of Rob McCunney at second base to end a Fordham scoring threat in the second inning.
Leiningen and the Pioneers are back in action tomorrow afternoon on the road against Rhode Island.
