NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – Duke freshman pitcher Thomas Girard was named to the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) Week 4 Honor Roll as announced by the league Monday.
Representing the Mystic Schooners, Girard was the only NECBL reliever with two saves this past week. Girard struck out two of the three batters he faced in a one-run game to secure his first save, then threw two innings of scoreless relief in Mystic’s 2-0 victory over New Bedford for his second save. The Blue Devil right-hander fanned six of the seven batters he faced in his second outing.
Girard has yet to yield an earned run in five NECBL outings this summer. In 13.0 innings, he’s allowed three hits and walked just two while totaling 23 strikeouts.
