Austin Smith, Southwestern University, Pitcher of the Week (Week 10)

AUSTIN SMITH OF SOUTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY, a sophomore right-hander from Cedar Park, Texas, has been named the SCAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week for games played from Monday, April 8 through Sunday, April 14.

Smith recorded his fourth double-digit strike out game in a row and his sixth this season in the Pirates’ 4-2 series opening win over fourth-ranked Trinity. The sophomore tossed a complete game, allowing just one hit and two earned runs while striking out 11 batters. 

Other Outstanding Performances:

Texas Lutheran freshman pitcher Matthew Hickey earned a win over Centenary in a very tight series opener that required extra innings, striking out two batters and allowing no earned runs through three innings of relief. Junior LHP Conrad Voss led Dallas to its lone win of the week over Schreiner in the series opener, punching four strike outs while allowing one earned run through eight innings of work. In a pair of appearances for Trinity last week, sophomore right-hander Corey Cater earned a win and a save, totaling eight strike outs while allowing four earned runs.
