BREVARD, N.C. – For the second time in the 2019 campaign, freshman left-handed pitcher Matthew Scavotto has been selected by the USA South Conference as the USA South Baseball Rookie Pitcher of the Week.
Scavatto came on in relief to pitch five shutout innings, keeping the Tornados in the game, a 4-1 loss to nationally-ranked Methodist on Sunday, in his only appearance last week. The freshman from Charlotte, North Carolina tossed the final five innings of the game and allowed just one hit with two walks.
The freshman from Charlotte, North Carolina earned the USA South's first weekly honor after hurling a two-hit, five-inning shutout back on February 9 at William Peace University.
This distinction marks the 23rd USA South weekly honor garnered by a Brevard College student-athlete this academic year.
