GLIAC salutes GV baseball player

Sophomore Patrick Kelly was named the GLIAC “Pitcher of the Week” on Monday for his performance in a nine-inning shutout against Wayne State University over the weekend.

Kelly, who was pitching on his 21st birthday, issued no walks in the 3-0 victory and gave up just four hits. He also twirled a nine-inning shutout in his last start against WSU in the 2013 GLIAC Tournament.

The GVSU rotation put together an impressive three-day span to open conference play 4-0, as four Lakers teamed up with senior closer Chris Ripple to post a 0.00 ERA.
