GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech senior Chris Goodman was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week following two dominating performances last week against Georgia State and Virginia.
The Marietta, Ga., native went 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 14.2 innings over two appearances, including one start and one relief appearance. On Tuesday against Georgia State, Goodman entered the game in the second inning with the Yellow Jackets trailing, 2-0. He pitched 5.2 innings and allowed just one unearned run as the Yellow Jackets rallied to tie the game at 3-3, and then break it open to 11-3 with eight runs over the final two innings.
On Sunday at Virgina, Goodman fired a three-hit shutout to help Tech win 1-0 and complete a three-game sweep of the Cavaliers. The right hander allowed just four baserunners (three hits and a walk) while striking out eight in the first complete game of his career. He was especially dominant in the second half of the game as he did not allow a base runner after the fourth inning and he retired the final 16 Virginia hitters in the game.
For the season, Goodman leads Tech with 8 wins in 74.2 innings. A former shortstop who made the successful conversion to pitcher last season, he currently stands as the top command pitcher in Georgia Tech history by allowing fewer than two walks per nine innings.
