Boston, MA --- WPI sophomore righty Doug Rives (Bethany, CT) has been tabbed as the NEWMAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week. He is the first Boynton Hiller to secure the honor since teammate Steven D'Agostino following the 2016 spring break trip. MIT junior Garrett Greenwood took home the league's athlete of the week accolades.
Rives did not allow an earned run in 6 2/3 and struck out a career-high nine batters in the Engineers NEWMAC victory over Emerson on Tuesday. For the season the sophomore boasts a 4-0 record and a save in five appearances. He also touts a 1.82 ERA and 26 strikeouts.
WPI (13-5) is on the road for a 3:30pm first pitch at Babson.
