Anthony Alicki earns ECC Pitcher of Week honors

For the second time this season, University of Bridgeport sophomore, right-hander Anthony Alicki from Milford has been selected as the East Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week; this time for his outranking play in games from April 27 through May 3.

Alicki picked up two wins last week helping Bridgeport take a share of the ECC regular season title.

On Saturday, he simply dominated St, Thomas Aquinas, picking up a complete game, nine inning 1-0 shutout win allowing only five hits with 10 K’s and three walks.

On Sunday, he picked up the win in relief in the Purple Knights’ 10-8 victory over the Spartans that clinched a share of the regular season championship.

On the season, Alicki is 6-3 overall with a 2.07 ERA and has 72 strikeouts in 65.1 innings pitched.

Next up for the Bridgeport baseball team is the East Coast Conference Championship Tournament, which will be hosted by Molloy College.

The Purple Knights open play in the double-elimination tournament on Thursday at 12 p.m. versus St. Thomas Aquinas College.
