NEC PITCHER OF THE WEEK
Jamie Carlson, Sacred Heart
Sr., P, Corona, CA/Corona
Carlson twirled a pair of shutout victories as Sacred Heart posted a 3-1 record at the Buffalo Wild Wings Classic. Pitching to an 0.83 WHIP, the senior righthander allowed only six hits and four walks while striking out 13 batters over 12.0 scoreless innings. She went the distance in a 3-0 shutout of MAC member Toledo, surrendering three hits and fanning seven Rockets in 7.0 frames of work. Carlson took the ball again and produced more of the same against Delaware State. She struck out six and blanked the Hornets for 5.0 innings in the 8-0 victory, which was called early due to the 8-run rule.
