Blevins Earns Fourth Sun Belt Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week Honor in 2024

Sophomore Achieves Rare Feat, Matching Record for Weekly Awards in a Single Season

NEW ORLEANS – Marshall University Baseball’s pitcher Bryce Blevins clinched the Sun Belt Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week title for the fourth time this season, according to an announcement from the league office on Tuesday.

Blevins has now entered elite territory by becoming only the third player in SBC history to secure four weekly awards in a single season. This accomplishment places him alongside Texas State infielder Dalton Shuffield, who achieved the same feat in 2022, and Arkansas State pitcher Taylor Fowler, who secured five awards in 2005. The tradition of weekly awards from the Sun Belt began in 1985.

In his latest standout performance, Blevins showcased his skills on the mound during Saturday’s victory against Georgia State. He delivered a stellar performance, recording his sixth quality start of the season and setting a personal best with 11 strikeouts over 7.0 innings. The sophomore allowed just one run on four hits and a walk, securing his third win of the season.

Blevins has now lowered his ERA to an SBC-leading 2.59. His 26 looking strikeouts rank first in the conference, with his total of 65 strikeouts of opposing batters placing him fifth overall.

Herd Baseball returns to action on Wednesday, hosting the Ohio Bobcats at 6 p.m. at Jack Cook Field.
