BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Sophomore pitcher Ryan Gaines has been named the Southern Athletic Association Baseball Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced today.

Gaines, a right-hander from Dunwoody, Ga., picked up his third win of the season on Saturday to move to 3-0. He pitched the complete-game seven-inning shutout in game two against Centre, giving up only three hits while striking out seven batters. His ERA for the week was 0.00 and he allowed opponents to hit only .130 while on the mound.

The Panthers are currently 11-0 on the season and 6-0 in the SAA and ranked 10th in the nation by D3baseball.com. BSC travels to face LaGrange tomorrow before returning home this weekend to host Covenant College and Webster College.
