RICHMOND, Va. – VCU junior pitcher Kyle Haynes has been named the CAA Player of the Week by College Sports Madness for his stalwart pitching performance against in-state rival and CAA foe Old Dominion.
The Stafford, Va., native pitched seven complete innings, fanned six ODU batters and allowed just one hit to help the Rams post a 3-0 victory on Sunday over the Monarchs. The VCU bullpen would not allow a hit the rest of the way, preserving the one-hitter. Haynes' performance helped the Black & Gold post a series victory and kept the Rams in the hunt for a berth in the CAA tournament.
VCU is set to play at VMI on Tuesday at 6 p.m., before hosting Georgia State in a weekend series at The Diamond starting on Friday at 6 p.m.
