SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Sacramento State baseball's Parker Brahms was named the Western Athletic Conference's Pitcher of the Week, the league announced Monday.
Brahms made two starts last week, including a dominant outing at home Friday night against the Milwaukee Panthers. Brahms tossed seven scoreless innings against Milwaukee, striking out seven while allowing just four hits and one walk. He picked up his first win of the season while maintaining his 0.00 ERA.
His first start was a one-inning outing on the road at Pacific last Tuesday, in which he allowed two hits while throwing 23 pitches. The start served more as a mid-week throwing session for the sophomore, who dazzled three days later at home.
For the season, Brahms is 1-0 with a perfect 0.00 ERA. He has yet to allow a run through his first 21.0 innings and has held opponents to a .157 batting average. He has both the conference's best strikeout to walk ratio (13.00) and best WHIP (0.62). Those numbers are 18th and 23rd in all of NCAA Div. I baseball, respectively.
Brahms will take the mound again this Saturday as Sacramento State hosts Santa Clara in the third of four games (two at Santa Clara, two at John Smith Field). First pitch is set for 6:00 pm. The full Sacramento State baseball schedule is available online here.
