USC Aiken's Garcia named Peach Belt Pitcher of the Week

Mar. 4—USC Aiken baseball standout Matt Garcia has been named the Peach Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week, as announced by the league office.

Garcia, a redshirt-sophomore from Louisville, Colo., was outstanding in his weekend effort against Claflin.

He came in during the fourth inning and delivered big in the victory. Garcia worked 5 1/3 frames and had a career-high 12 strikeouts while giving up just one earned run on four hits with one walk.

The victory propelled Garcia to a 2-0 record on the season. He currently sports a 1.20 ERA in 15 innings of work this year.

Garcia and the Pacers visit Newberry at 6 p.m. Wednesday before continuing PBC play this weekend at Georgia Southwestern.
