North Georgia College & State University’s Jacob Beauchamp has been named the Peach Belt Conference Freshman of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday afternoon.
Beauchamp was stellar as he tossed nine scoreless innings in two North Georgia wins. Beauchamp started the week by working a nearly perfect eighth inning in a 5-3 win over Toccoa Falls. Later in the week Beauchamp allowed only four hits pitching eight innings, while striking out five in a 15-2 win over Georgia Southwestern.
He set down the side in order in the second, fourth, sixth and seventh and retired seven in a row at one point before a batter reached on an error.
With the win Beauchamp improved to 3-0 on the season, while lowering his earned run average to a team best 3.00.
