Cook Tabbed SAA Pitcher of the Week

ATLANTA – Birmingham-Southern baseball student-athlete Jake Cook was named the Southern Athletic Association Pitcher of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Cook started in game one of BSC's SAA-opening series at Millsaps on Friday, throwing seven strong shutout innings. The right-handed senior allowed just four hits and three walks while striking out six batters.

Cook was awarded the win in the game, improving his record on the mound to 3-1 this season and dropping his ERA to a league-best 1.50 among pitchers with at least 15 innings.

Coming off a week where he was named to the Team of the Week, this was Cook's first time to win SAA Pitcher of the Week this season.

Birmingham-Southern will host the Emory Eagles in its next game on Tuesday, March 12.
