Emory University sophomore Kyle Monk pitched out of the bullpen in three of Emory’s four games during the week, going 1-0 with a pair of saves. Monk allowed just two earned runs and six hits in 4.2 innings of work, while striking out four batters and walking one. He picked up the win during Tuesday’s 10-5 victory against LaGrange, pitching the final 1.2 innings, allowing one unearned run on two hits and a walk, while striking out one. On Friday, he earned a save against Piedmont College, closing out the game by pitching the final 2.1 innings, surrendering a pair of runs on four hits and striking out three without issuing a walk. Monk earned his second save of the week, getting the final two outs of the game without allowing a baserunner. He improved to 3-1 on the season with nine saves and a 2.70 ERA. Monk’s nine saves this year are the second-most in the program’s history, while his 17 career saves are one short of the program record. The Eagles ended the regular season with a 26-12 record.
