  • Follow Latest News

Augusta GreenJackets starting pitcher Kyle Nicholson has been named the South Atlantic League’s 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 league’s weekly award.

“Nicholson was lights out,” GreenJackets manager Dave Machemer said. “It was another good outing for him.”
