TORRINGTON: Litchfield County is proud to announce their 2013 Most Valuable Local Torrington Titans pitcher.

He is a former Torrington High School and American Legion P-38 star who battled through a 50 summer season to post the second most wins on the Titans.

Patrick Austin, who started the first and last home games for Torrington, posted a 4-3 record with a 3.66 ERA.

Two of Austin’s four wins came against the two-time defending Nashua Silver Knights.

In 10 innings of work over the two wins, Austin gave up just three hits and one earned run.

He made 10 starts, going at least five innings in seven, totaling 46.2 innings in which he struck out 38.

On July 20, Austin allowed just two hits and one run in a 3-1 win over Seacoast that included five strikeouts.

Austin heads back to UMass, Boston this fall for his junior year after making himself a force on the 2013 Torrington Titans.
