NEW ORLEANS — After limiting No. 19 UL Lafayette to one run over seven-plus innings in a 6-1 win, Appalachian State University baseball’s Breydan Gorham has been named the Sun Belt Conference Community Coffee Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced back on Monday afternoon.

Gorham’s honor comes on the heels of last Saturday’s gem against the 19th-ranked Ragin’ Cajuns. The true freshman silenced a crowd of 4,457 by holding UL Lafayette scoreless through seven full innings. He was lifted from the game after a walk and a single to start the eighth and was charged with his lone run after UL Lafayette finally got on the scoreboard with an RBI groundout later in the inning.

The right-hander scattered six hits, issued only one walk and struck out four in the impressive seven-plus-inning outing. The Cajuns did not advance a runner past second base while he was in the ballgame.

In his last two starts, Gorham (3-4) has allowed just two runs over 14 innings of work to lead Appalachian State to impressive wins over Arkansas State (9-2 on April 29) and No. 19 UL Lafayette. He has compiled an ERA of 1.29 and an opponents’ batting average of .188 in those two sterling performances.
