Determann Named LSWA Baseball Pitcher of the Week
BATON ROUGE — Tulane’s Micah Owings and LSU relief pitcher Jason Determann were chosen as this week’s state baseball honorees by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
Owings hit .400 (6-for-15) with a double, home run and eight RBIs at the plate last week. Owings had at least one hit and reached base twice via hit or walk in all four games with two-hit outings Tuesday against UNO and Friday against Conference USA foe Memphis. He was 2-for-3 with a towering home run that cleared the light stand in left field at Tulane and a season-best five RBI in the Friday game against Memphis. He also pitched against Memphis in the first game of the series, striking out nine, walking two and giving up two runs on three hits to run his record to 6-4 in 2005.
Determann, the junior lefty from Baton Rouge, picked up two saves for LSU in the series win over Kentucky, working 4.1 innings and allowing just one hit. Determann recorded no walks and seven strikeouts in the two outings, increasing his saves total on the year to six. That made Determann 3-0 on the year with a 1.93 ERA and he has allowed just 34 hits in 42 innings pitched.
