MACON, Ga. - A complete game two-hitter at Stetson on Saturday night has earned junior RHP Alex McRae (West Allis, Wis.) Atlantic Sun Pitcher of the Week honors for a second time this season. The Jacksonville staff now has claim to four Pitcher of the Week Awards in 12 weeks this season, most of any ASun team.

McRae held a no-hitter thru the first six innings against the Hatters and stayed dominate throughout. He ended the night striking out seven batters and walking just one while throwing 113 pitches. McRae, who also had a complete game four-hit shutout vs Winthrop back on March 1, improved to 4-6 with Saturday’s win.

He enters this week ranked 5th in the league with 56 strikeouts.

Jacksonville returns to action on Tuesday at Florida A&M before hosting the Rattlers on Wednesday at 6:00 pm at Sessions Stadium.
