LANCASTER, Pa. – Gio Fricchione (New Tripoli, Pa./Northwestern), a junior on the McDaniel baseball team, has been named the Centennial Conference (CC) Pitcher of the Week for the week of Apr. 23-29.

Fricchione closed out a pair of wins for the Green Terror (24-10, 11-7 CC) on Sunday to lift the team over Ursinus twice and into the CC tournament for the first time since 2003. Entering with a two-on, nobody out situation in the seventh inning, he recorded the final three outs to protect a 4-3 lead and earn the save in game one. In the nightcap, he entered a 5-all game in the eighth, stranding a runner then worked around a two-out error in the ninth to pick up the win in a 8-5 victory.

For the season, he has a 2.51 ERA in 14 1/3 innings of work with nine strikeouts.

McDaniel returns to action in the first round of the double-elimination conference tournament at Johns Hopkins on Friday. Game time is 3 p.m.
