Lambert Named to Initial National Pitcher of the Year Watch List
Liberty right-hander Trey Lambert is one of 47 players listed on the first watch list for the 2014 National Pitcher of the Year Award.
The Pitcher of the Year Award, sponsored by Diamond, will be presented during the National College Baseball Hall of Fame's annual Night of Champions on June 28 in Lubbock, Texas.
Lambert enters the weekend with a 9-1 record with a 2.12 ERA over a team-high 72 1/3 innings. The senior leads the Big South Conference and is second in the nation in wins. He has struck out 47 and walked 12 in 10 starts this season.
Lambert leads the Big South Conference with three complete games, two of which were shutouts, and has held opponents to a .218 batting average.
After pitching a one-hit shutout in a 5-0 win at Presbyterian College on March 28, Lambert was named Big South Conference Pitcher of the Week for March 31. He also received several national honors, as he was selected an NCAA.com Top Performer for Week 7 and an ECAC Player of the Week.
Lambert has also pitched complete games in a 5-0 win against VMI on April 4 and in his last outing, a 5-1 win at Gardner-Webb on April 17.
Lambert and the No. 30 Flames will host the UNC Asheville Bulldogs in the opener of a three-game series this evening at Liberty Baseball Stadium. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m.
