Nine George Washington baseball pitchers are currently competing in collegiate summer leagues around the country. After contributing to a memorable season for GW, each of these pitchers has carried the momentum to their respective summer teams.

So far this summer, GW pitchers have thrown a total of 249 innings. They have struck out 196 batters while walking only 58. The pitchers have combined for a 16-13 record and 2.93 ERA with four saves.

Two players, rising seniors Luke Staub and Colin Milon, made their respective league's all-star games, with Staub earning the start for the South Division in the Northwoods League All-Star Game on Tuesday night.

Staub was identified as a top prospect in the Northwoods League earlier this season and currently leads the league with a 1.57 ERA while ranking fourth with 42 strikeouts.

Milon is 5-0 in six starts with 28 strikeouts, 10 walks and a 2.07 ERA for the Alexandria Aces in the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League. 

Rising sophomore Bobby LeWarne recently was the starting and winning pitcher for the Clarinda A's as the team won the Northern Division Championship in the M.I.N.K League. LeWarne threw seven innings and surrendered just two runs on five hits while striking out four. For the season he is 3-1 with a 2.72 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 33 innings of work. 

Elsewhere, rising senior Aaron Weisberg is 6-0 with a 3.16 ERA and 43 strikeouts in eight starts for the Staunton Braves (Valley League), and rising sophomore Danny O'Donnell has two wins, 24 strikeouts and a 3.95 ERA for the Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts in the CRCBL.
