Hemmerich selected as MEAC Pitcher of the Week

NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk State senior left handed pitcher Devin Hemmerich was chosen as the MEAC Pitcher of the Week, the conference announced on Monday.

Hemmerich pitched 7.1 innings of no-hit baseball on Sunday in an 8-0 win over Towson, eventually finishing with a one-hit shutout. He allowed just an eighth-inning single, and only one batter advanced past second base. Hemmerich struck out seven and walked four to improve to 2-2 on the season.

Hemmerich leads the MEAC with 28 strikeouts in 29 innings pitched this season and sports a 3.10 ERA through four starts. Sunday’s win was the eighth complete game and second shutout of his career. This is the fourth MEAC Pitcher of the Week award in his career.
