Saints Southpaw Named KJCCC Pitcher of the Week
KSCB News - February 12, 2015 6:33 am
Seward County lefty Hayden Howard was sharp in his return to the Saints green and white this week, tossing 10 innings without allowing an earned run to earn Week One KJCCC Co-Pitcher of the Week Honors.
The Texas Tech signee dominated in his first two outings of the 2015 season for the Saints last week, logging 10 innings, allowing just 1 unearned run while striking out 8 opposing hitters. In Seward’s season opener against McCook Howard came out of the bullpen and was lights out for the Saints, going 4 innings without allowing a hit while punching out 8. On Saturday against Galveston, Howard got it done in a different way, inducing 16 groundball outs in 6 shutout innings of work to give the Saints a 4-1 win over the Whitecaps.
Howard splits week one honors with Hutchinson freshman Kyle Cantu.
Seward will be back at it this weekend at home at Brent Gould Field as they host the Northeastern Plainsmen in a four game series beginning Saturday at 1:00.
