Gomber Earns Sun Belt Baseball Pitcher of the Week


Gomber Earns Sun Belt Baseball Pitcher of the Week

A season-high eight strikeout performance has earned lefthander Austin Gomber the Sun Belt ConferencePitcher of the Week Award, the conference office announced.

The lefty hander pitched 7.1 scoreless innings in the Owls’ victory over South Florida rival FIU in the opening weekend of conference play.

Gomber retired 11 batters in a row after recording back-to-back strikeouts to get out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning. He faced only one three-ball count the entire game to improve his season record to 2-1 and lowered his earned run average to a team-leading 1.68.

The award was Gomber's first, although two FAU players have already been recognized by the conference this spring. Senior first baseman Mark Nelson was last week’s Player of the Week, and senior pitcher Jeremy Strawn earned Pitcher of the Week honors in late February.
