Hernandez Wins National Player of the Week

KSCB News - March 24, 2016 4:15 pm

March 24, 2016

After hurling one of the, or the, best game of the 2016 NJCAA Baseball season on Saturday against Pratt, Seward County lefthander Jakob Hernandez was named the NJCAA National Pitcher of the Week in a national release on Thursday.

The Saints ace was nearly untouchable Saturday afternoon as he matched up against the visiting Pratt Beavers in Jayhawk West play. Hernandez struck out a school record 19 Beaver hitters in a 7 inning game including recording the final 14 outs of the game via strikeout. He allowed just one hit in his third complete game shutout of the 2016 season. Hernandez, the nation’s strikeout leader by 21 punchouts, has fanned 82 in just 44 1/3 innings of action this season.

Hernandez and the Saints will be back in action on Friday when they take on the Rose State Raiders in a three game non-conference series before Easter Sunday.
