Ryan Hinson Named ACC Co-Pitcher-of-the-Week

March 31, 2008

GREENSBORO, N.C. – For the third time this season, weekly honors in Atlantic Coast Conference baseball have been shared by multiple student-athletes. Florida State’s Buster Posey has been tabbed ACC Player of the Week, while Clemson’s Ryan Hinson and Virginia’s Pat McAnaney are named ACC Co-Pitchers of the Week.

It marks the second week in a row that a Clemson pitcher has collected the league’s weekly honor.

Hinson, a junior from Rock Hill, S.C., picked up a save and victory in two outings last week. In the second game against Elon last Wednesday, he pitched 2.0 perfect innings in relief with three strikeouts in a close game to preserve Clemson’s 2-1 win and earn a save. At Maryland on Sunday, he allowed just six hits, two runs, and one walk with eight strikeouts as the Tigers collected a 6-2 win. For the week, Hinson pitched 9.0 innings allowing just six hits, two runs, and one walk while striking out 11.

The Tigers will return to the diamond this week as they play Georgia in a home-and-away series on Tuesday and Wednesday.
