SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Sacramento State baseball's pitcher Tanner Dalton was named the Western Athletic Conference's Pitcher of the Week, the league announced Monday morning.
Dalton appeared in three games for the Hornets last week and allowed just one hit over four innings to earn a pair of saves. In a non-conference win over UC Davis, he allowed one hit and struck out one over one inning on the hill. On Saturday at CSU Bakersfield, he struck out two over one hitless inning to earn the save in a 3-1 win. He followed that up with two innings of no-hit ball to earn the save on Sunday in an 8-6 victory.
The recognition is the first career Pitcher of the Week award for Dalton who is in his debut season with Sacramento State. He leads the team in appearances (19) and saves (6) and has the clubs second best ERA (1.93) and K/9 (9.26).
