YORK, Pa. – After a twin-bill sweep of Averett University to open the 2017 season, the Capital Athletic Conference awarded a Marymount (Va.) University baseball player for his efforts in the victories, naming sophomore Conner Hall CAC Pitcher of the Week.
Hall is named Pitcher of the Week for the first time of his collegiate career.
A dual-role player, the Alexandria, Virginia native was moved from his shortstop position late in both seven-inning games on Saturday as relief on the mound. In game one, he took over on the hill with one out remaining in the contest with runners on first and second and the Saints leading, 3-1. The first batter up, Hall had the hit go centerfield for the fly out and seal up the 3-1 victory and earn his first save of the season.
In game two, the sophomore moved from shortstop again for the final 2.2 innings, earning the win with a scoreless one-hit effort.
For the day, he recorded a win and a save on the mound, tossing three shutout innings with just one hit, while holding Averett batters to a .111 batting average.
Hall and the Saints continue on the road on Wednesday, February 22, traveling to Hampden-Sydney College for a non-conference matchup. First pitch is set 3 p.m.
