Anthony Armanino, a senior left-handed pitcher for the eighth-ranked Lewis-Clark State College baseball team, was named the NAIA West Red Lion Pitcher of the
Week, league officials announced Monday.
Armanino, from San Carlos, Calif., helped the Warriors to a 4-2 record in a six-game road trip in Florida last week. The Warriors return from the road swing with a record of 24-7, and return to NAIA West play this weekend at College of Idaho.
Against No. 7 Embry-Riddle in Daytona Beach on Thursday, Armanino was nothing short of masterful, tossing a complete-game four-hitter against the Eagles in a 5-1 LCSC triumph. Armanino struck out four and did not walk a batter, and improved his season record to 6-1 with a 1.53 earned run average.
He leads the LCSC staff with 33 strikeouts in 47 innings, and opposing batters are hitting just .188 off him.
Armanino joins Carsen Nylund as Warrior hurlers to receive the Pitcher of the Week honors thus far in 2013.
