PHILADELPHIA - Saint Joseph's sophomore righthander Dominic Favazza was voted the Philadelphia Big 5 Pitcher of the Week on Tuesday morning. The voting was conducted by the head coaches and sports information directors at the five Division I baseball-playing universities in Philadelphia.
Favazza had his best performance in a Saint Joseph's uniform on Friday, going eight innings and earning the win in a 3-2 SJU victory over La Salle. He scattered six hits while giving up two runs, one of them earned, and struck out a career-high nine Explorers against three walks. With the win, he improved to 1-1 on the season.
