MEDFORD -- The Tufts University baseball team's bullpen continues to do quality work in the 2010 season, and today that was reflected as junior reliever Ed Bernstein (Foxborough, MA) was selected as the New England Small College Athletic Conference's (NESCAC) Pitcher of the Week.

Bernstein, the team's set-up man, did not allow a run during 2.2 innings of work in three tight games last week. Tufts was 4-0 overall for the week. The Jumbos swept a three-game set at home against Colby and improved to 15-3 overall and 5-1 in the NESCAC East.

On Tuesday in the Jumbos' home opener against Brandeis, Bernstein had two strike outs in a scoreless eighth inning during a 3-1 victory. On Saturday in a NESCAC East Division game against Colby, Bernstein was called upon in the top of the eighth with Tufts trailing 8-7 and two Colby runners on base with one out. He stranded the runners by getting two outs, and Tufts went on to score three in the bottom of the inning to win 10-8. Bernstein picked up the victory. Then in the first game of a doubleheader against Colby on Sunday, Tufts was leading 2-1 and Bernstein recorded a "hold" with a scoreless sixth inning (in a seven-inning game).

Bernstein has not allowed an earned run in 10 appearances covering 10.2 innings so far this season. He's allowed just six hits and two walks while striking out 13 batters. Opponents are batting just .143 against him.

Bernstein's partner in the bullpen, sophomore closer Chris DeGoti (Miami, FL), was the last Jumbo to win Pitcher of the Week in the conference almost exactly a year ago on April 13, 2009. DeGoti recorded three saves last week and leads NESCAC with six for the season.
