Andrew Carraway was a big reason for the Cavalier baseball team's trip to the College World Series. During his senior season in 2009, Carraway solidified himself as a weekend starter, and made some clutch appearances out of the bullpen. Now he's performing well in his first minor league assignment.

Carraway is with the Class A short season Everett Aqua Sox of the Northwest League, which is part of the Seattle Mariners minor league system. The pitcher was selected by Seattle in June's draft. Carraway is coming out of the bullpen for the Sox, and is holding opponents very well. He has appeared in seven games so far this season and has yet to give up a run. Carraway holds a 2-0 record and even has one save to his credit. In 10.2 innings pitched, he has struck out 17 batters, while only giving up one walk. Opponents are only hitting .146 against him thus far.

The former Cavalier hurler put up numbers that caught the Mariners' eye during his senior year. Carraway boasted a 9-2 record with a 3.96 ERA.
