He threw a three-hit shutout in the Eagles' 4-0 win over South Florida State on April 26. He faced one batter over the minimum, fanned two and did not allow a walk in a complete-game performance, which extended his scoreless inning streak to 17.

Pearce (6-1) has thrown three-complete games in a row for the eighth-ranked Eagles (34-16).

He fanned 10 in a 4-2 complete-game victory over Hillsborough on April 20.

Pearce also struck out 10 in an 8-3 complete-game victory over South Florida State on April 12.

He held State College of Florida to one run on five hits over eight innings on April 5.
