LAWRENCEVILLE – Showing no ill effects from a year’s absence on the mound, Georgia Gwinnett College senior left hander Hunter Peck has garnered the first Association of Independent Institutions Baseball Pitcher of the Week award for the 2020 season.
Peck picked up where he left off from the 2018 season, opening this spring with two dominating performances for the No. 5-ranked Grizzlies. He tossed five scoreless innings in a no-decision during the season opener at No. 4 Southeastern University (Fla.) on Jan. 30.
Then, the Wakefield, Va., native recorded a victory in a five-inning performance against Georgetown College (Ky.) last Friday at the Grizzly Baseball Complex.
For the season, Peck has a 1-0 record with a 0.00 earned run average and 11 strikeouts, compared to one walk. He has held opposing hitters to a .184 batting average.
Peck missed the 2019 season after earning A.I.I. Pitcher of the Year honors in 2018.
GGC stands 2-2 on the season and is scheduled to play six games this week, starting at No. 22 Middle Georgia State University on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 3 p.m. in Cochran, Ga.
