Sam Long, Baseball

Northwestern Mutual Student-Athlete of the Week, May 5-11

Freshman left handed pitcher Sam Long threw seven shutout innings at Texas Pan-American on Saturday, recording a career-high seven strikeouts and leading the Hornets to a 3-1 win. He allowed just one hit, a single in the fourth inning, but that runner was erased on a caught stealing as he faced the minimum 21 batters over the seven innings. Long didn’t technically start Saturday's game, but he started the resumption of Friday’s suspended game in the third inning and threw the last seven innings of the contest to lead the team to a victory over UTPA ace Sam Street, who was 11-0 and hadn't lost a game in a full calendar year. Long, who graduated from Del Campo high school a semester early to enroll at Sacramento State in January, improved to 6-1 on the season and 4-0 in the WAC and has a 2.59 ERA over 76.1 innings pitched this season.
