CLEMSON, S.C. – Junior lefthander Pat Krall (Downingtown, Pa.) was selected as ACC Pitcher-of-the-Week, announced Monday by the league office. ACC weekly honors are determined by a vote of a select media panel. It was the second award for Krall in 2016, as he was named ACC Co-Pitcher-of-the-Week on April 4. He was also named one of five national players-of-the-week by Collegiate Baseball.
Krall allowed just eight hits (.151 opponents’ batting average) and one run (0.56 ERA) with 13 strikeouts in 16.0 innings pitched to earn two wins over two top-10 teams last week, both in series-clinching victories.
On Monday, he tossed 7.0 innings in relief against No. 4 Florida State, allowing just three hits, no runs and one walk with eight strikeouts in Clemson’s 7-3 win. In his first career start on Sunday, he gave up just five hits, one run and three walks with five strikeouts in 9.0 innings pitched to earn the complete-game win in the Tigers’ 2-1 walkoff victory over No. 9 NC State. Both Florida State and NC State were batting over .300 entering the games. Krall became the first Tiger since 2000 to register wins over two different top-10 teams in one week.
On the season, Krall is 8-1 with two saves, an 0.73 ERA, a .184 opponents’ batting average and 51 strikeouts against 14 walks in 61.2 innings pitched over 21 appearances (one start).
