Baseball's Chin Named ACC Pitcher of the Week
May 19, 2014
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Boston College redshirt sophomore Andrew Chin was named Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week for his performance against 25th-ranked Clemson on May 16. The left-handed starter threw a two-hit complete game as the Eagles (22-33, 10-20 ACC) defeated the Tigers, 3-1.
The Newton, Mass., native held the Tigers to one unearned run on two hits. He retired 10 straight batters between the fifth and eighth innings and 14 of the final 16 faced. Only five Clemson runners reached base in the game.
It was the first time an Eagle threw a two-hitter since Mike Wlodarczyk completed the feat in a 7-2, seven-inning win over West Virginia on March 24, 2005. It was also the Eagles' first complete game since Mike Dennhardt pitched a 4-0 shutout against Maryland on April 10, 2010.
Chin's teammate Chris Shaw earned ACC Player of the Week honors earlier in the season, but Chin is the first Eagle to garner the pitching accolades since Dennhardt did so for his performance against the Terrapins in 2010.
The southpaw ended the season with a 3.10 ERA, lowering his career ERA to 3.49, which is fourth in BC record books. His .214 opponent batting average ranked ninth in the ACC for the season. He finished the year with a 5-2 record and 52 strikeouts.
