Albers Tabbed Sunshine State Conference Pitcher of the Week
WINTER PARK, Fla.—Saint Leo senior relief pitcher Adam Albers (Valrico, Fla.) did not allow a single runner to reach base in two appearances. In a 5-3 regional win versus West Alabama, Albers struck out four batters over 1.2 innings and earned a save. He also picked up a save in 0.2 innings of a 2-1 Lions' win over UWA in the second half of the doubleheader. Saint Leo has won nine games in a row.
"Adam Albers had a very good weekend for us," Head Coach Sean O'Connor said. "He came into ballgames in tough situations and bailed us out. His role has been set to do that, and he stepped up and got it done."
