The West Coast League has named Mitch Lines the first Pitcher of the Week for the 2018 season.
Lines started game one at Bend Friday night and earned the victory pitching five innings of shut out baseball while striking out eight Elks hitters. Lines only allowed two singles, four total base runners and saw the minimum thanks to some solid defensive plays behind him.
The Battle Ground, WA native and sophomore at Lower Columbia College had a solid season for the Red Devils. Lines finished with a perfect 6-0 record in seven starts with a sparkling 1.94 ERA.
