STANDISH, Maine – The Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) weekly accolades have been released and Saint Joseph's College senior Grayson Jennings (Mililani, Hawaii) has been selected as the GNAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week.
Jennings was dominant in a 3-0 win at Bowdoin College on Monday, as the senior right-hander struck out eight over five innings of one-hit ball to pick up the victory and improve to 3-1 on the season.
In nine appearances, including eight starts, this season Jennings is 3-1 with a 3.12 ERA and 30 strikeouts over 34.2 innings. He has allowed 28 hits and just 12 walks and opponents are hitting only .220 against him this spring. Jennings currently ranks fifth in the GNAC in starts, 11th in strikeouts, and 14th in opponents' batting average.
For his career, Jennings is 12-6 with one save and a 4.12 ERA with 121 strikeouts in 129 innings over 41 appearances, including 27 starts. The GNAC Pitcher of the Week award is the second of his career and first since March 26th, 2017.
Saint Joseph's, the #2 seed in the GNAC Baseball Tournament, will host either Anna Maria College or Johnson & Wales University in a first-round matchup on Thursday at 3:30 PM.
