SACRAMENTO -- Sacramento State senior pitcher Savanna Corr was named the Big Sky Conference Pitcher of the Week for the second consecutive week after helping the Hornets to a 2-1 record at the UC Riverside Classic.
The right-hander also earned the award on Feb. 25 after helping lead Sacramento State to a three-game sweep of Loyola Marymount. In each of her last five appearances, Corr has limited the opposition to one run or less. That includes pitching in all three of Sacramento State's games at the UC Riverside Classic.
Corr finished the tourney with a 2-1 record and a 0.58 ERA. The Chino Hills, Calif., native limited the opposition to a .105 batting average, allowing just four hits with five strikeouts over 12 innings. In her only start, she tossed a three-hit shutout against UC Riverside, and made her final two appearances of the tournament in relief. Her only blemish was a hard-luck loss after allowing just one hit and one run in four relief innings against UTEP.
In Friday's tournament-opening 5-0 win at UC Riverside, Corr tossed a three-hit shutout, and needed just 103 pitches to get the win. The shutout was her third of the season. She did not allow a hit until the fifth, and the only inning where Corr allowed a runner past second base was the sixth.
In Sunday's 2-1 victory over Cal Baptist, Corr entered the game in the top of the seventh inning with the Hornets already trailing, 1-0, and a runner at second base with no outs. She proceeded to set down all three of the batters she faced in succession, keeping Sacramento State's deficit at one run. The Hornets would score two in the bottom of the seventh to win.
Corr is now 6-4 this season with a 2.56 ERA. In 54.2 innings, she has allowed just 39 hits and opponents are batting .198 when she's in the circle. A fourth-year senior, Corr needs just one win to match her season high for victories (7), which was set last year.
Sacramento State (8-7) has a busy week ahead as the Hornets will play seven games away from home over a five-day span. That stretch begins with a doubleheader on Wednesday at Stanford, followed by five games over three days (Friday-Sunday) at the Louisville Slugger Tournament in Stockton.
