ECU, staff reports

Wednesday, June 6, 2018

East Carolina baseball has had a freshman All-American in four straight years after pitcher/first baseman Alec Burleson was named to the Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-America Team on Wednesday.

Burleson, who was the unanimous American Athletic Conference freshman pitcher of the year, made 19 appearances on the mound (eight starts) as a rookie and posted a 5-2 record with four saves and a 3.33 ERA. He struck out 49 batters and walked 16 in 54 innings.

The Denver, N.C., native also split time between first base and designated hitter, batting .252 with three doubles, 18 RBIs and 13 runs scored. He had three multi-RBI games, including his four RBIs at Charlotte on March 10.

The left-hander picked up his first win at Campbell on Feb. 21 after tossing three scoreless frames with a pair of strikeouts in his first start. He also recorded wins against UNC Wilmington, Tulane, Cincinnati and Connecticut. His four saves ranked second on ECU behind six by senior Ryan Ross.

Burleson is the 16th freshman All-American in school history and he continues a streak that started in 2015 with Joe Ingle and was followed by Dwanya-Williams Sutton and then Spencer Brickhouse before Burleson’s honor this year.
