NEW YORK, N.Y. – Junior pitcher Ryan Turton of the Mount Saint Mary College baseball team was named the Skyline Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week for all games through March 15, 2015, as announced by the conference office on Monday.

Turton made a spectacular start in his only appearance during the Knights’ six-game trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C. for the Ripken Experience. Turton drew the start against Johnson & Wales University on Wednesday, March 4, tossing eight scoreless innings to earn the Knights’ first win of the season. He allowed just six hits and struck out one to improve to 1-0 on the year. Turton had a 2.33 earned run average (ERA) in 2014 and had a 2-2 record last season.

The Knights will next play on Tuesday, March 24, in a game against New Jersey City College at Mount Saint Mary College. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.
