Holmes Community College sophomore left-handed pitcher Scott Shearer has been named the Baseball Pitcher of the Week for his play last week in Selma, Ala.
Shearer from Independence pitched a no-hitter in five innings of work and was one play away from a perfect game after the Bulldogs committed an error. Shearer gave up no runs, no hits with no strikeouts and no walks. As a freshman, Shearer finished the season with a record of 6-2 with a 4.98 ERA. He pitched in 12 games and went 68 2/3 innings with 39 strikeouts and 17 walks.
Holmes plays Southeastern Illinois on Feb. 18 and Feb. 19 in two doubleheaders. Gametimes are 1/4 both days.
Shearer is now up for NJCAA Pitcher of the Week honors.
