BOSTON – Ryan Pordes of the No. 24 Suffolk baseball team has been selected as the GNAC Corvias Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced Monday afternoon.
Pordes, a junior from Hawthorne, California, dealt a complete-game, one-run, six-hit, six-strikeout effort versus Rochester Institute March 24 to grab the first weekly honor of his Suffolk career. He is also the first Ram of the 2017 season to be recognized by the league.
The rightie threw the complete nine for his first win of the season with the full-game effort being his second-ever in a blue-and-gold uniform. Pordes is the first Rams' arm to go an entire nine-inning contest on the bump this year and first to do so since Kyle Turner did in a 10-0 victory over St. Joseph's (Maine) in the GNAC Semifinals May 7, 2016.
Pordes and the Rams return to the diamond, pending field conditions, Thursday, March 23 at MIT. First pitch is slated for 3:30 p.m.
