GREENSBORO, N.C. – Clemson freshman Davis Sharpe was named the first ACC Player-of-the-Week of the 2019 season, announced Monday by the ACC office.
Sharpe (Dacula, Ga.) had a remarkable day during Clemson’s doubleheader against South Alabama on Saturday. He started on the mound in the first contest, which was his first game as a Tiger, and earned the win by allowing just two hits, no runs and two walks with eight strikeouts in 5.0 innings pitched in Clemson’s 7-2 victory.
In the second contest of the doubleheader, he played his first career game in the batting order and hit two home runs with three RBIs as the designated hitter.
Wake Forest sophomore Jared Shuster was recognized as ACC Pitcher-of-the-Week. Weekly honorees for ACC baseball are selected by a vote of a media panel and announced on Mondays throughout the regular season.
