Barry Named A10 Pitcher of the Week

Davidson pitcher Allen Barry threw six innings against Towson in the first game of the Wildcats’ double header.

 

Davidson senior pitcher Allen Barry is the season’s first Atlantic 10 Conference Pitcher of the Week honoree, the league announced Monday afternoon.

The right-hander from Malvern, Pa., opened his 2019 campaign with a winning effort against Towson on Saturday.

Barry tossed six innings, allowing two hits and striking out six on 73 pitches as the Wildcats won 15-3. He retired the final 11 batters he faced.

“I thought Allen threw as well as I’ve seen him,” said head coach Rucker Taylor. “His fastball command was good, and I thought his breaking ball was the sharpest he’s had. His change-up was an effective pitch when needed, and he really controlled himself and the pace of the game well.”

The 3-1 Wildcats are home for a weekend series against Fairleigh Dickinson.
