USA’s Locke St. John Named SBC Pitcher of the Week
South Alabama’s Locke St. John was named the Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week on Monday by the conference office in New Orleans, Louisiana.
St. John, a 6’1″ junior from Pell City, Alabama, tossed seven innings in combining for the Jaguars second shutout of the season. He only allowed three hits with two strikeouts in the series opener against Arkansas State. He only allowed two ASU runners to move into scoring position in the seven innings.
St. John is the first left-hander to win the SBC Pitcher of the Week honrs this season and the first Jaguar to be honored since Jarron Cito on March 25, 2013.
He ranks second in the conference with an ERA of 2.68, is tied for fourth in runs allowed with 18 and is fifth in innings pitched with 57.
The Jags will host Southeast Louisiana this evening (if field conditions permit) prior to traveling to Bowling Green, Kentucky for a three game series against Western Kentucky.
