West Babylon, N.Y.-University of Bridgeport sophomore, right-hander Jonathan Brooks (Stratford, Conn.) has been selected as the East Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week for his outstanding play in game that took place from April 30 through May 6, 2018.
Brooks helped propel UB into the 2018 ECC Championship Tournament last week, as he was simply dominant out of the bullpen making three appearances in which he worked seven scoreless innings to pick up a win and a save. In those seven innings, Jonathan allowed only four hits and struck out three and issued only two walks. He also picked up the victory in the game that clinches a spot in the ECC Championship for Bridgeport. So far this season, Brooks has a 2-0 record with one save and leads the team with a 3.68 ERA.
Up next, Brooks and his Purple Knights' teammates will open play in the 2018 East Coast Conference Baseball Championship Tournament on Thursday afternoon at 12 noon against St. Thomas Aquinas at Mitchel Field in Uniondale, N.Y.
