Keystone College baseball players Dan Denton and Mike Pembleton were both honored on March 31 as the Colonial States Athletic Conference announced their weekly award winners. Denton was named the CSAC Hitter of the Week and Pembleton was tabbed as the league’s Pitcher of the Week as the duo led the Giants to a doubleheader sweep of Centenary College on March 28.
Denton earned his first CSAC weekly award after powering Keystone to a 10-0 win over the Cyclones in the second game of Friday’s twin bill. The junior outfielder went 2-3 with a pair of home runs and five RBIs in the victory. Denton opened the scoring with a three-run shot in the first inning before adding a two-run round-tripper in the fifth inning.
Pembleton garnered his first weekly award of the season after tossing a complete game shutout in Friday’s game two, 10-0 win. The senior right-hander was dominant on the hill, scattering six hits in the seven-inning game while striking out six batters to earn his first victory of the season.
