WVU pitcher Bergert strikes out 14 in win over St. Joseph’s

From WVU Sports Information

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Sophomore right-hander Ryan Bergert struck out a career-high 14 batters in 8 innings of work in the West Virginia’s 5-1 win over Saint Joseph’s on Saturday afternoon at the Brittain Resorts Invitational.

The strikeout total was the most by a Mountaineer pitcher since Nick Snyder punched out 16 on April 30, 2019, against Marshall. Bergert allowed just one run on two hits in his impressive outing, conceding just one walk and a hit batter.

“He gets better on the field because of what he does off the field,” WVU coach Randy Mazey said of Bergert.
