GREENWOOD - Lander's Taylor Alvarez, a sophomore from Chapin, S.C., was named the Peach Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week Tuesday it was announced by the league office.
Last week, Alvarez tossed a complete-game, five-hit shutout Friday in the No. 2-ranked Bearcats' 4-0 non-conference victory at the University of North Alabama.
Alvarez struck out five and didn't allow a walk for his first complete game of the season. North Alabama had runners at second and third in the third inning with one out before Alvarez got a fly ball and strikeout to end the threat. He retired the side in the third, fifth and sixth innings.
