Freshman Nick Silva was named the Rookie of the Week by the America East Conference on Tuesday morning. Silva pitched in four games over the past week and recorded two saves, while also picking up a victory in contests versus Rhode Island and UMass Lowell.
The freshman allowed just three hits in his outings and struck out five players during the last week. Silva sports an impressive 9.24 strikeout per nine innings mark and is second on the team with two saves.
Silva becomes the third Maine baseball player to earn a Rookie of the Week honor in the conference, following teammates Colin Ridley and Danny Casals. Maine will face Colby College for an out of conference match-up on Wednesday afternoon.
