Somerset, N.J. (April 30, 2018) - Mount St. Mary's University lefty Trey McGough has been named Northeast Conference Co-Pitcher of the Week for the second time this season by the league office on Monday afternoon.
Setting the tone for Mount St. Mary's series sweep, McGough twirled an absolute gem during Friday's opener. The sophomore southpaw fired a 9-inning complete-game one-hitter, earning a 7-0 victory over Sacred Heart. Pitching to an 0.44 WHIP, McGough limited SHU to three bases on balls and one fourth-inning single. He retired the first 10 batters of the game, setting down five of the first six men via strikeout. McGough, who struck out the side in his first inning of work, finished the day with seven punchouts. Dan Schock's one-out single to left field broke up the no-hit bid in the fourth frame. McGough worked around leadoff walks in the eighth and ninth innings, finishing a full 9.0 frames for the first time since March 30 when he went the distance in a 6-1 win over Bryant.
McGough is 3-4 on the year with a 4.03 ERA. He has struck out 49 batters while holding the opposition to just a .227 average in 60.1 innings of work.
The Mountaineers travel to Georgetown on Tuesday for mid-week action under the lights at 7 PM.
