GREENWOOD - Lander's Colton Rogers, a junior, left-handed pitcher from Coral Springs, Fla., was selected the Peach Belt Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week it was announced today.
Rogers allowed one earned run in seven innings of work Saturday as Lander beat Flagler 6-1 in the second game of their conference sweep over the weekend. He scattered six hits with four walks and struck out seven for his first win of the year.
Rogers proved to be an escape artist, getting out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the second inning with a strikeout and groundout. The bases were loaded again in the third with a run in when he got out of it with a fly ball. He returned to retire the side in order in the fourth and no Saint baserunner made it past second the rest of the way.
