San Antonio - Trinity sophomore James Nittoli has earned Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week accolades.
The left-hander made only one appearance last week, but it resulted in a 9-0 victory by the seventh-ranked Tigers over Milikin (IL) University at Georgetown, Texas. Nittoli was the game's starter and hurled for six full innings. He fanned eight of the Big Blue players and did not allow a hit. The decision gave Trinity its fourth consecutive win.
This season, Nittoli is undefeated at 3-0. He is sporting an amazing ERA of 0.87 over 20.2 innings and has struck out 22 opposing players.
Trinity stands at 10-1 on the season, and will return home Tuesday for a game against University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (TX) at 4:00 p.m.
