John Soldinger Named MAAC Pitcher of the Week
RIVERDALE, N.Y. - Manhattan junior right-hander John Soldinger was named MAAC Pitcher of the Week after delivering an exceptional performance at #20 Maryland on Friday. The reigning MAAC Pitcher of the Year struck out eight Terps and yielded only two hits in seven strong innings of work on the hill.
Soldinger set a season-high with eight strikeouts before turning the ball over to the bullpen with a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning. In two starts this season, Soldinger has maintained a 1.29 ERA, which is the second best in the MAAC, and he has struck out 15 batters.
Manhattan returns to action on Wednesday when the Jaspers travel to Seton Hall. First pitch is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. in South Orange, N.J.
