Hull Earns Fifth ODAC Pitcher of the Week Honor
FOREST, Va. -- Freshman pitcher Hanna Hull earned her fifth ODAC Pitcher of the Week honor this week. It is the third-straight week she has been recognized.
Hull, a native of Chesterfield, Va., continues to shine in the circle for the nationally top-ranked Marlins as she went 2-0 with a save in three appearances last week.
Hull opened with a two-hit shutout in the Marlins 4-0 victory over nationally 16th-ranked Randolph-Macon. She issued one free pass but offset her three allowed base runners with 17 strikeouts, the second-most she's recorded in a game this season.
Hull came back in the second game to shut the door on a 4-1 victory. She earned the save with two perfect innings as she fanned all six batters she faced.
She was back in the circle for a start in Virginia Wesleyan's 3-2 victory over Roanoke. She went the distance and gave up two unearned runs on four hits with two walks and 10 strikeouts. It marked her 11th overall appearance and third straight start with 10 or more strikeouts. Trailing 2-1 in the seventh, she provided the game-winning hit, driving in two to preserve the Marlins' perfect record in ODAC play.
For the season, Hull leads the ODAC with a 17-1 record. She also tops the league in earned run average (0.51), strikeouts (197), and shutouts (7). Opponents are hitting just .119 against her.
