Sinclair Community College | Softball Pitcher of the Week

Chastain (SO/RHP – Beavercreek H.S.) was victorious in both appearances, one start and one out of the ‘pen, standing in the circle for a total of 12.0 innings. For the week, she struck out 14 batters while surrendering just three hits and a walk. Her day began with a 5-inning relief stint before coming right back and tossing a complete game shutout in Game 2 of the doubleheader. That’s a dozen straight innings of scoreless pitching in a 2-0 doubleheader for the Tartan Pride.

Only one game back in the standings from taking over the top spot in the conference, Sinclair needs to gear up for the final three OCCAC series.  All on the road at Lakeland and Owens then the series that could determine the conference championship, at Cuyahoga.
