Chestnut Hill, Mass. - - Boston College pitcher/utility player Steve Langone (Reading, Mass.) was named BIG EAST Pitcher of the Week for his play during April 24-30. The senior received the distinction for the fourth time in his career and second time this season.
Langone (7-2) pitched six shutout innings in a 16-3 victory over Georgetown April 30. He faced just one batter more than the minimum (19) through six innings and allowed just two hits, striking out six.
The right-hander currently owns the nation's fourth-lowest ERA of 1.48. He has allowed only five earned runs in the past 40.0 innings and currently holds a 10 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio.
The Reading native is also one of BC's top hitters. In addition to leading the BIG EAST in ERA, Langone tops all conference sluggers with 19 doubles. In the month of April, he batted .385 and is now hitting .363 overall with six home runs and 31 RBIs.
Boston College is 31-15 overall and 11-9 in the BIG EAST. The Eagles have swept two conference, three-game series (Villanova, Georgetown) in addition to a doubleheader sweep of St. John's, a first in BC's program.
