Lehigh pitcher Kyle Collina struck out the side and pitched a scoreless inning in the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League (ACBL) All-Star Game on Saturday. The game was played on the campus of St. John's University in Queens.
Pitching for the Wolff Division team, Collina came on in relief to start the bottom of the third inning of the game. He faced four batters, allowing one hit while striking out three.
Despite Collina's efforts, the Kaiser Division topped the Wolff Division by a score of 3-1.
Collina battled through arm injury to post a 2-4 record with a 4.71 earned run average (ERA) in 13 appearances. He started three games, striking out 46 batters in just over 36 innings of work. As the team's closer, he was tops on the squad with four saves. Collina got the start and pitched five gutsy innings in Lehigh's must-win game over Lafayette on April 28 that propelled the Mountain Hawks into the Patriot League's postseason tournament for the third consecutive season.
Collina earned a spot on the ACBL All-Star roster thanks to his strong work on the hill as a member of the Quakertown (Pa.) Blazers.
