Seminole State College of Florida sophomore Mike Clevinger has been named this week's Florida Community College Activities Association (FCCAA) Baseball Pitcher of the Week.
Clevinger, a right-hander from Jacksonville, recorded saves in both his appearances last week. Against then-No. 1 Miami Dade on Feb. 19, he struck out four batters and recorded a four-out save in game one of a doubleheader. The next day, he pitched a scoreless inning to record the save and preserve a 7-5 win over CCBC-Cantonsville. For the week, Clevinger allowed only one hit and one walk, striking out five in 2.1 innings pitched.
Clevinger is the second Raider pitcher to receive Pitcher of the Week honors so far this season. Jacob Newberry, of Eagle Lake, was recognized two weeks ago.
The Raiders jumped into the FCCAA Baseball Coaches' Poll for the first time this season, at No. 6 this week. The Raiders, 13-6 overall and with a three-game win streak, take on Hillsborough CC on Friday and Palm Beach State on Saturday and Sunday. All three games -- free for Seminole State students, faculty and staff -- are at Jack Pantelias Field on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. Conference play begins Wednesday, March 2 against College of Central Florida.
