Boston College Baseball: Andrew Chin Named ACC Pitcher Of The Week

BCEagles.com

Redshirt sophomore lefty will head back to Chatham and the Cape League this summer after being the Eagles' best starter in '14.

Andrew Chin was named the last regular season ACC Pitcher of the Week for his efforts in defeating Clemson this past weekend.  The redshirt sophomore lefty threw the first complete game in four years as Boston College defeated the Tigers, 3-1, in South Carolina last Saturday.  It was also the first two-hit performance of the ACC era for the program.

Chin allowed zero earned runs in the victory and retired 10 straight batters between the fifth and eighth innings.  Five Clemson runners reached base as he retired 14 of the final 16 batters faced.  It was the first complete game thrown of the Mike Gambino era.

The local, Newton native went a team best 5-2 in 2014 with a 3.10 ERA.  His 78.1 innings were most on the team, and his 59 hits allowed also ranked tops among regular starting pitchers.  He struck out 52 batters and walked only 32.

Chin will head back to Cape Cod this summer to pitch for the Chatham Anglers, who he appeared with in 2013.  Last summer, he struggled in seven starts and nine appearances, allowing 25 runs over 30-plus innings for an ERA of 6.45.  He'll be teamed up with three other Eagles at Veterans Field this summer - position players Blake Butera (who played for Chatham last summer) and Chris Shaw and fellow starting pitcher Jeff Burke.

The lanky lefty will also be draft eligible for this year's MLB Entry Draft after being picked three years ago in the fifth round.  Three years removed from his last high school game, he spent his first year at the Heights as a medical redshirt while recovering from Tommy John surgery.  He has been in the rotation for the past two years.
