Tallahassee, Fla – For the second straight week, a Seminole pitcher has earned ACC Pitcher of the Week honors. Senior left-hander Daniel Davidson made his first career weekend start against Virginia on Sunday after a stellar performance against St. Joseph’s on Tuesday. Davidson didn’t allow a runner past second base, while striking out five in a career-high 7.0 innings of work in his Sunday outing. Daniel Hodges earned the same honors last week for the Tribe.
Davidson went 1-0 for the week with a 0.00 ERA in two appearances. The senior lefty struck out 12 batters, allowing just three hits and no walks in 10.1 innings of work. The Panama City, Fla., product did not allow a runner past second base in 10.1 innings last week and held his opponents to a .094 hitting percentage. Davidson is 2-0 this season (0.47 ERA) with 26 strikeouts and four walks in 19.0 innings pitched.
Sterry led the Wolfpack to a 5-0 week with his two wins over The Citadel (4-3) and Princeton (8-2). The right-hander from Rowland Heights, Calif., worked 7.1 innings versus The Citadel, striking out ten batters and walking only two. The junior pitched a complete game seven-hitter against Princeton, extending NC State’s streak to 13 consecutive wins.
