SACRAMENTO — Sacramento State senior Savanna Corr was named the Big Sky Conference Pitcher of the Week after helping lead the Hornets to a three-game sweep of Loyola Marymount over the weekend.
Making the sweep even more impressive is it came against an LMU team that was receiving votes in the NFCA top 25 coaches poll.
Corr went 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in two appearances. In 10.1 innings pitched, the right-hander allowed just six hits (five singles) and one unearned run with four strikeouts. Corr, who picked up one win as a starter and one in relief, limited LMU batters to just a .162 batting average.
In the Hornets' opening game of the series on Saturday, the Chino Hills, Calif., native went the distance in a 4-1 victory, allowing just four hits and one unearned run while striking out three over seven innings. She needed just 109 pitches to pick up her third complete-game win of the season. LMU did not record a hit until the fourth inning, and only one of the Lions' four hits went for extra bases.
In Sunday's series finale, Corr picked up the win in relief, pitching the final 3.1 innings. She allowed just two hits and struck out a batter. Corr entered the game in the fourth inning with runners at the corners, and worked out of the jam. She needed 53 pitches to pick up her fourth win of the season and both hits she allowed were singles.
Corr has appeared in 10 of Sacramento State's 12 games this year, and has a 4-3 record with a 3.12 ERA. Opponents are batting just .220 against the fourth-year senior, and she has yielded just 35 hits in 42.2 innings.
The Hornets (6-6) return to action tomorrow when they host UC Davis at 2:30 p.m.
