MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Junior Jeffrey Praml, a gradiate of Bridgewater-Raritan High School, was selected as the Northeast-10 Pitcher of the Week for the period ending March 1, the league office announced Monday afternoon.
Praml, a member of the Southern New Hampshire University baseball team pitched a complete-game one-hitter, allowed one earned run, struck out seven and walked two, as SNHU defeated New York Tech, 4-1, on Sunday.
In three appearances this season, including two starts, Praml is 2-0 with a 0.59 ERA, striking out 16 and walking three, over 15 1/3 innings. He is tied for the league lead in wins, while ranking fourth in ERA, seventh in innings pitched, eighth in strikeouts and ninth in batting average against (.098).
The Penmen, ranked 21st in the latest National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Division II Poll, went 3-0 last week as they swept a three-game set on the road from the defending East Region Champion and eighth-ranked New York Institute of Technology.
