NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Saint Joseph's sophomore righthander Kyle Mullen was named the Atlantic 10 and Philadelphia Big 5 Baseball Pitcher of the Week on Monday afternoon. Mullen earned the honors after his second complete game shutout of the season came on Friday against Saint Louis.
Mullen shut down the defending league champions, allowing just four hits and zero walks while striking out four. He allowed two runners to reach third base and did not allow a runner past first over the course of the final five innings of the game.
Mullen previously tossed a seven-inning shutout at Texas-San Antonio on February 26th. He gave up just six hits and three walks as the Hawks beat the Roadrunners, 3-0.
Saint Joseph's heads to Lehigh on Tuesday afternoon for its first round game in the 2011 Liberty Bell Classic. Live audio will be available on SJUHawks.com beginning at 3:00 p.m.
