Determann nabs weekly conference award

LSU junior left-hander Jason Determann was named Monday as the SEC Pitcher of the Week by the league office.

Determann earned a win and a save at Mississippi State last weekend to help lead LSU to the SEC Western Division championship. He appeared in a total of three games last week, posting a 1.17 ERA in 7.2 innings as he allowed one run on eight hits with three walks and nine strikeouts.

Determann worked six innings in the Mississippi State series, limiting the Bulldogs to one run on seven hits with one walk and six strikeouts. He earned a relief win in Friday at MSU, allowing one run on five hits in 3.1 innings with one walk and two strikeouts.

After firing 47 pitches on Friday, Determann returned to the mound on Sunday to register his seventh save of the season. He pitched the final 2.2 innings, allowing no runs on two hits with no walks and four strikeouts. Determann fanned the final two MSU batters with runners on second and first and one out with LSU clinging to a 3-2 lead.

For the entire season, Determann is 4-0 in 23 relief appearances with a 1.80 ERA and seven saves -- in 50 innings, he has recorded eight walks and 59 strikeouts and opponents are batting just .238 against him.
