Lost in the kerfuffle that was #PimpinAintEasy on Saturday during USF baseball’s dominating 13-1 victory over the smelly, bad, and ugly ECU Pirates was RHP Peter Strzelecki’s complete game gem.
The senior from Lake Worth was recognized as the Pitcher of the Week by the American Athletic Conference on Monday.
After the Bulls were thoroughly out-played by the Pirates on Friday night and in the middle of a four game losing streak, Strzelecki stopped the bleeding with his best outing of the season. He scattered five hits, and allowed just one hit in his last three innings of work. Strzelecki also struck out four and walked one.
He’s turned himself into the workhouse much like Phoenix Sanders last season. Strzelecki leads the team in innings pitched (57.2), ERA (2.67), and wins (6).
3B David Villar made the weekly honor roll for his efforts last week. The junior hit .467, scored five runs, hit two doubles, and had what turned out to be the game-winning home run on Sunday against smelly, bad, and ugly ECU.
He leads the team in batting average (.389) and sits third in the conference. He also has a team-high in runs scored (36), doubles (16) which is tied for sixth in the nation, RBI (37), on-base percentage (.491).
Softball Catcher Macy Cook Earns Player of the Week Honors
USF softball has righted the ship since their early season struggles (ALWAYS TRUST KEN), and the Bulls were able to take two-of-three from Tulsa over the weekend in large part due to how well C Macy Cook hit.
The junior from Uniontown, Ohio went 6-for-11, two doubles, one RBI, and two runs scored. She recorded two hits in each game over the weekend.
Cook is now hitting .277 this year and has 15 BB compared to just nine strikeouts. Her .991 fielding percentage is the best on the team. She hasn’t had an error since March 1.
The Bulls (31-16, 9-3 AAC) travel to smelly, bad, and ugly ECU this weekend.
