Williams threw a combined 10 innings of shutout relief over two games to help the Colonials to a 3-1 week.

In last Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Delaware State, Williams pitched three perfect innings out of the bullpen. He faced the minimum of nine batters and recorded five strikeouts against zero walks.

In Sunday's 8-1 victory over St. Bonaventure, Williams again came out of the bullpen and went on to throw seven shutout innings of relief to help clinch the series sweep for the Colonials.

After entering the game in the third inning, he scattered six hits with two walks and four strikeouts to earn his second win of the season.
