Senior pitcher Alexis Osorio’s complete-game shutout over ninth-ranked Florida State helped the Riverside, Calif., native capture Co-Pitcher of the Week honors from the Southeastern Conference on Monday.
The award is the first this season for Osorio and the fifth of her career. Overall, Alabama has won SEC Pitcher of the Week 38 times in program history.
Osorio pitched one game this week but made the most of her lone start, throwing a complete-game shutout over ninth-ranked Florida State Friday night. It was just the second time the Seminoles have been shut out this season and the most times they had been struck out, as Osorio fanned a season-high 10 batters. Only two of Florida State’s seven baserunners in the game made it to scoring position.
