SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento State freshman right-hander Jennifer Hartman was named the Big Sky Conference's Pitcher of the Week after going 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA last week.
The Hornets posted a 4-1 record during the week, including a doubleheader split with UC Davis and a three-game sweep of Santa Clara. A Sacramento State pitcher has now accounted for three of the league's first four pitcher of the week awards this season, as sophomore Caitlin Brooks earned the honor on Feb. 12 and Feb. 19.
Hartman earned her first two collegiate wins last week as the true freshman won her lone start and picked up a victory with 4.2 innings of shutout relief. In 10.2 innings, she allowed just eight hits and two unearned runs while striking out four batters and limiting the opposition to a .216 batting average. In addition, the Bonita, Calif., native did not allow an extra base hit all week, opponents hit just .091 (1-for-11) with two outs in an inning, and she induced 19 ground-ball outs.
In the Hornets' 3-2 win over Santa Clara on Saturday, Hartman pitched six innings while allowing just four hits and two unearned runs. She struck out four batters and threw 95 pitches to pick up the first collegiate win of her career. On Sunday, Hartman earned another win in a game which saw Sacramento State score three times in the seventh inning to erase a 3-1 deficit. The right-hander allowed just four hits and no runs in 4.2 innings of relief.
Overall this year, Hartman is now 2-1 with a 0.84 ERA. Opponents are hitting just .203, and she has allowed 12 hits and four runs (two earned) in 16.2 innings of work. The 0.84 ERA is a team high, and the opposition has collected just two extra base hits all season.
Sacramento State (8-5) returns to action next week when the team takes part in the three-day, five-game Mustang Classic in San Luis Obispo, Calif., on March 8-10. The Hornets will play both Rutgers and Nevada on Friday, tournament host Cal Poly and Northern Illinois on Saturday, and Cal Poly again on Sunday.
