Pitchers Sweep Big Ten Weekly Awards
Ohio State just picked up Big Ten Pitcher of the Week awards in baseball and softball for strong performances from Brad Goldberg and Alex DiDomenico. First, Goldberg and his two-hitter:
Goldberg, from Beachwood, Ohio, picked up the win in his Ohio State debut as the Buckeyes topped St. John's, 3-1, Sunday. The senior tossed seven scoreless innings, striking out seven while giving up two hits. He allowed just one baserunner past second base.
Not to be outdone, DiDomenico held batters to a .130 average in three appearances:
DiDomenico, from Youngstown, Ohio, posted a spotless earned run average last weekend, pitching 15 innings in three appearances at the Jacksonville Tournament where she held opponents to a .130 average. She closed the weekend with an eight-inning effort against No. 16/17 Louisville, scattering just four hits while striking out three in the win Feb. 16. DiDomenico won the opening game against Bethune-Cookman Feb. 15, striking out four, before coming onto pitch three innings of scoreless relief against the Wildcats Feb. 15.
Congratulations, Brad and Alex.
