Augusta GreenJackets starting pitcher Kyle Nicholson has been named the South Atlantic Leagues Pitcher of the Week, according to a statement released by the team this afternoon.
Nicholson, a 23-year-old right-hander, threw a complete game, three-hitter in a 7-1 victory over the Lexington Legend on Saturday. He struck out five and walked one en route to becoming the first GreenJackets to throw a nine-inning complete game this season and the first to earn the leagues weekly award.
Nicholson was lights out, GreenJackets manager Dave Machemer said. It was another good outing for him.
