Elon’s Barrett Named CAA Baseball Pitcher of the Week

RICHMOND, Va. – Elon senior left-hander Jordan Barrett has been selected as the CAA Pitcher of the Week following a week in which he set a new career high in strikeouts.

Barrett, a native of Margate, Fla., went 1-0 and struck out 16 batters in 8.1 innings of work during two appearances last week. He allowed just two hits and one run over 7.0 innings while fanning a personal-best 13 in Elon’s 10-1 victory over Radford last Tuesday. In that performance, Barrett carried a no-hitter in to the sixth inning. In a relief effort against #12 Clemson on Sunday, he gave up just one hit over 1.1 innings and struck out three.

This is the second straight week that an Elon player has earned league pitcher of the week accolades. Last week, Robbie Welhaf claimed the honor.
