MACON, Ga. - Lipscomb's Brandon McClurg helped the Bisons to a series victory over the previously undefeated Jacksonville Dolphins.
On Monday, the Atlantic Sun Conference office honored the standout with his first career weekly award. It is the first Pitcher of the Week award for a Lipscomb arm in 2008.
McClurg, a mechanical engineering major from Hendersonville, Tenn., pitched seven scoreless innings in his first start of the season as the Bisons won 10-0 over Jacksonville on Saturday, the second of two wins in the three-game series. The losses were the first for Jacksonville in the A-Sun this season. The junior struck out nine and surrendered just three hits in the victory.
