Long Beach State junior Erin Jones-Wesley (Alta Loma, Calif./Los Osos HS), who tossed two complete game victories against rival Cal State Fullerton, claimed Big West Softball Pitcher of the Week accolades.
After losing game one of Saturday's doubleheader, the 49ers turned to Jones-Wesley for a solid effort in the circle and she delivered.
Jones-Wesley notched a four-hit shutout to guide LBSU to a 1-0 win in game two. She retired the final 13 batters she faced to emerge unscathed in a classic pitcher's duel. In addition, Jones-Wesley walked just one and struck out six.
She returned to duty for the rubber game Sunday, marking the first time since mid-March that she pitched in back-to-back games. Jones-Wesley struggled early as she allowed four runs (three earned) and six hits through the first three frames. But despite the 4-0 deficit, Long Beach State erupted for a seven-run third inning to capture the lead and Jones-Wesley took over from there.
The right-handed hurler yielded just two more hits and kept the Titans scoreless for the final four innings to wrap up the 7-4 victory. Jones-Wesley did not walk a batter and fanned five in the 116-pitch outing.
Jones-Wesley improved to 13-6 on the season and lowered her ERA to 2.62. For the week, she posted a 1.50 ERA while walking one and striking out 11 in 14 innings pitched.
