Freshman Bobby Grigas of the Susquehanna University Baseball team earned his first career start Sunday afternoon against Christopher Newport in the final game of a three-game trip to Newport News, Virginia and was impressive enough to earn the Landmark Conference Pitcher of the Week award for the week ending Feb. 26.

Grigas threw seven innings scoreless allowing just four hits and striking out 12 batters as he led the River Hawks to their first victory of the season with a 4-0 final score.

He recorded five strike outs in the first two innings and then added two more in the third inning and another in the fourth for a total of eight strike outs in the first four innings.

He then pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth to keep the Captains off the scoreboard.

The River Hawks (1-2) return to action Saturday with a doubleheader at Roanoke College starting at noon.
