Lambert named America East Pitcher of the WeekTweet
Binghamton senior right hander Jake Lambert has been selected as the America East Pitcher of the Week, the conference announced April 22. Lambert’s honor makes it two weeks in a row for Binghamton University pitchers after teammate Jay Lynch won the award last week.
Lambert improved to 4-1 on season with eight shutout innings against UMBC in BU’s 1-0 series-opening win on Saturday. He equaled his career-high with nine strikeouts while allowing only two hits.
Lambert retired the side in order in the second, fifth, sixth and eighth innings. He worked around a leadoff single in the third and then escaped a two-on jam in the fourth. Lambert also stranded a runner at second in the seventh with an inning-ending strikeout.
With the eight shutout innings, Lambert lowered his season ERA to 3.79. He hasn’t allowed an earned run in his last 15 innings. He has 36 strikeouts in 38 innings pitched against America East foes and ranks fourth in the conference in total strikeouts (47).
