Parkland Sharks starter dominates on the mound in Week 8 of CLPB

West Palm Beach, FL. – Parkland Sharks filthy righty Nick Rivera has been named CLPB’s Week 8 Pitcher of the Week, announced Saturday by the league office.

Rivera has been efficient all year long for the Sharks but has shined bright the past few outings.

Nick’s last start was nothing short of amazing. In a 7-1 win over the Palm Beach Vipers, Rivera threw an absolute gem. 7 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 11 strikeouts, and the win!

As we enter the final week of the summer season, Rivera has caught fire as one of the most elite arms in the South division. 

The crafty right-hander hails from Monroe, New York where he continues to pursue his collegiate career and strike out batters religiously with that untouchable slider. 

The Parkland Sharks hold a 14-14 record. Only a few games back of a playoff spot, Parkland hopes to solidify a spot and compete for a league championship.
