Chris Mederos Named to All-Ping!Baseball Team
STATESBORO, Ga. Georgia Southern pitcher Chris Mederos (Valdosta/Lowndes County/Gordon College) was named to the 2009 All-Ping!Baseball team. The junior right-hander was a Third Team pick at starting pitcher.
The three teams and honorable mention selections were broken down by positions as Mederos was one of seven representing the Southern Conference.
Mederos finished the year 11-1 with a 3.83 ERA in 94 innings. He struck out 113 batters to just 29 walks allowed, starting in all 16 appearances. In the latest national statistical rankings, Mederos stands ninth in victories and 17th in strikeouts.
He pitched at least five innings in all but one start. The First Team All-SoCon and SoCon All-Tournament pick struck out at least six batters in 13 of his 16 starts, including consecutive outings of double-digits (11 Ks versus Wofford, 12 against Davidson in the opening round of the SoCon Tournament).
Among the Georgia Southern season leaders, Mederos tied for 10th in wins, tied for sixth winning eight consecutive decisions, and fell just five strikeouts shy of joining that season list. He helped the Eagles to a 42-17 record, win their fourth SoCon Tournament championship and make the program’s 12th appearance in the NCAA Regionals.
