BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Alabama State freshman Jeremy Rivera was named this week’s Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Pitcher of the Week for his performance against Alabama A&M on Thursday, announced by the conference office Monday afternoon.
Rivera picked up his sixth win of the season to improve to 6-2 with a save during his freshman campaign. The freshman picked up a complete game win over Alabama A&M in the 4-2 Thursday victory for the Hornets. He scattered seven hits and allowed just two runs on the day, while striking out nine and walking just one in the process. It was the first complete game for Rivera, and the first nine-inning complete game for the Hornets this season.
Alabama State returns to action Tuesday afternoon against South Alabama in a doubleheader at the Wheeler-Watkins Baseball Complex beginning at 3 pm. The two teams will resume a game that was postponed due to fog back on February 19, before playing their regularly scheduled game. Both games will be carried on the Hornet Sports Network.
