Kehr closes the door, Porter earns honor and more
Eastern University freshman Ryan Kehr (Littlestown) came in and shut the door for the Eagles in a 4-3 win against Wilkes University.
The save was the first of the career for Kehr who came in and threw two innings, allowing one earned run, striking out two but he did not walk a batter.
Kehr is a two-way player for the Eagles playing both second and coming in as a relief pitcher. On the year he is hitting .158 with three hits and two RBI. On the mound, Kehr has a 2.45 ERA and a save in two appearances.
Porter earns weekly honor
York College's Colin Porter (South Western) had a huge weekend for the Spartans, helping lead them to a pair of wins over Marymount on Saturday and 8-0 win over Randolph-Macon on Sunday.
The senior shortstop earned CAC Player of the Week honors after going 7-for-12 with six runs scored, six RBI, three walks, two doubles and two home runs.
The Spartans are on a four-game winning streak and are currently 7-2 on the season.
Buckley dominates on the bump
Frederick Community College freshman Austin Buckley (Delone Catholic) earned his first collegiate win last week after throwing four shutout innings against Jefferson Community College in a 5-0 FCC win.
Buckley was making his first appearance on the mound and allowed one hit while striking out six and not walking a batter.
"For a guy who hasn't had many innings, Austin pounded the strike zone against a pretty tough team," Frederick Community College head coach Rodney Bennett said. "He threw strikes. He worked down, locating his breaking ball and he let his defense do the work. He definitely put himself on the map as a guy to go to when another opportunity on the mound comes around."
Ayres nearly automatic
Hagerstown Community College's Cooper Ayres (Delone Catholic) is off to a hot start.
The sophomore is tied for the team lead in wins with three, winning his last three appearances.
During the stretch, Ayres has thrown 15.2 innings striking out 16 and walking three while only allowing three earned runs.
In his last appearance last week, Ayres threw six-inning complete game performance in a 12-2 win against Prince George's Community. He allowed four hits and two runs, one earned, while striking out six and walking two.
The Hawks are 12-6 on the season.
Hockenberry stays hot
Temple senior Matt Hockenberry is going out with a bang.
He pitched a career game last week, going 8.2 innings striking out six while walking one in a 5-4 win over Hartford University. Hockenberry allowed four unearned runs while giving up five hits.
All of Hartford's runs were scored in the first two innings, and Hockenberry retired the side in the fifth, six, seventh, and eighth innings.
On the season, Hockenberry is 2-0 record with a 2.36 ERA.
