MARIETTA -- Three members of the Marietta Patriots were named to the Sunbelt League's All-Star roster that will compete at the 2019 Southeast Collegiate Prospect Showcase.
Greg Collins was named to the 2019 All-Star roster as the Pats active team leader in appearances with seven this season and a 3.50 ERA, best among qualifying Pats pitchers. He and fellow all-star Nate Dupree both lead the team with 19 strikeouts. The right-hander from Catawba Valley made his first start of the season Monday night against the Norcross Astros and pitched a team-high seven innings, allowing two runs on four hits with four strikeouts.
A rising senior pitcher from Reinhardt University, Alex Watkins has recorded ten strikeouts in six relief appearances this season. In his last four games, Watkins has allowed no runs in a combined 6.2 innings and recorded a win and a save. Watkins is also the Patriots career leader in appearances (28) and saves (7).
A left-handed pitcher from Kennesaw State, Nate Dupree was named to the Southeast Collegiate Prospect Showcase roster for the second straight season after playing on the 2018 squad. The rising senior has started four games for Marietta and currently sports an ERA of 4.42 with 19 strikeouts in 18.1 innings. Dupree is also the second Pats player to be named to two Sunbelt Prospect Showcase teams after Michael Livingston was named to the 2015 and 2017 rosters.
The Sunbelt League will face the Ripken League at 7:35 p.m. July 15, and then the Florida League July 16 at 12:45 p.m. Last season, the Sunbelt League earned its first victory in the Prospect Showcase since 2013, defeating the Southern Collegiate Summer League 7-3.
