LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Slippery Rock High School graduate and Slippery Rock University junior Ricky Mineo was named PSAC Western Division Pitcher of the Week.
Mineo was nothing short of dominant in his first start of the season, tossing one of the best games of his career this weekend in a combined no-hitter. Mineo struck out 17 of the 18 batters he faced over six innings without allowing a hit and walking just three batters, combining with Travis Holman as part of a 19-0 victory for SRU over Davis & Elkins.
The 17 strikeouts are a Slippery Rock record and the fourth most by a PSAC pitcher all-time.
Of the 18 outs Mineo was on the mound for Sunday, only one was recorded by another Rock athlete, as Connor Hamilton threw out a Davis & Elkins baserunner who was attempting to steal second base.
