Virginia's Andrew Dobies Named ACC Pitcher of the Week
March 29, 2004
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – University of Virginia baseball player Andrew Dobies (Wexford, Pa./North Allegheny) was named the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Pitcher of the Week for his performance in Virginia’s 9-2 victory over N.C. State on March 26th in Raleigh, N.C. Dobies, a third-year LHP, pitched 9.0 innings and allowed just two runs on eight hits to go along with a game-high nine strikeouts without walking a single batter.
Dobies’ honor marks the fourth time this season a UVa player was named either the ACC Player or Pitcher of the Week. The Cavaliers’ Joe Koshansky (2/16 and 3/15) was twice named the ACC Player of the Week and Casey Lambert (3/15) was named the ACC Pitcher of the Week.
For the season, Dobies has posted a record of 4-0 with a 2.15 ERA. He has pitched 46.0 innings and has struck out a team-high 51 batters. Dobies is holding opposing hitters to a .216 batting average.
Dobies is scheduled to make his next pitching appearance this weekend when Virginia travels to Durham, N.C. for a three-game ACC series against Duke on April 2-4.
