Stony Brook, N.Y. - Senior right-hander Tyler Johnson, of the Stony Brook University baseball team, has been named America East Pitcher of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday. The Seawolves return to action on Tuesday, hosting Iona at 3:30 p.m.
Johnson went the distance in the Seawolves 2-1 eight-inning win over Binghamton on Friday as he allowed just the one run on five hits. He has an America East best 0.77 ERA this season.
