Senior Dave Krasnowiecki Named Northeast Conference Co-Pitcher of the Week
Central Connecticut senior lefty Dave
Krasnowiecki was named the Akadema Northeast Conference
Co-Pitcher of the Week on Monday. The Rhode Island native threw a
one-hit shutout in a 2-0 win over Fairleigh Dickinson in the first
game of a doubleheader sweep on Saturday.
Krasnowiecki made it three impressive pitching performances in a row when he took the ball on Saturday. Logging his best start of the season to date, the southpaw stymied a FDU line-up that pushed across seven runs in a series-opening victory. Krasnowiecki allowed only one hit over 7.0 innings, going the distance for a 2-0 win.
The senior has allowed only two earned runs and 11 hits in his last 20.0 innings of work, 14.0 of which came against NEC hitters. The only hit allowed on Saturday courtesy of Joe Martino's leadoff single to center field in the fifth inning. After a sac bunt moved Martino to second, Krasnowiecki left him there by notching back-to-back strikeouts in what was a scoreless game at the time.
CCSU broke through for the game's first run in the bottom half of the fifth and added another in the sixth. Meanwhile, Krasnowiecki continued to put up zeroes on the way to his third win of the season. He struck out five and walked four while lowering his ERA to 3.47.
