Jacks’ Clemen is Summit League Pitcher of the Week
A third South Dakota State pitcher has picked up top weekly honors in the Summit League.
The latest to be honored is right-hander Andrew Clemen, who tossed five shutout innings in his first career start May 10th, limiting Western Illinois to just three hits while striking out three and allowing one walk. The Jackrabbits won the game 5-0.
All 25 of the sophomore from Des Moines’ career appearances before that had come out of the SDSU bullpen.
Jacks’ pitchers Chad Hodges (February 24th, March 24th, April 21st, May 5th) and Adam Bray (February 17th and March 10th) have also been honored by the conference this season.
South Dakota State (25-25/9-9), closes out the regular season with a four-game series Thursday through Saturday at North Dakota State.
