Bailey Hall (Daleville, Va./James River) had a huge pitching performance in Sunday's doubleheader against Emory & Henry, and today the Old Dominion Athletic Conference recognized him as the ODAC Pitcher of the Week.
Hall went the distance in a nine-inning gem to help the Royals defeat Emory & Henry, 4-1. Hall scattered eight hits during his full shift on the hill, giving up one run without a walk. He fanned four batters and at one point retired 17-of-18 batters after allowing the Wasps lone run in the fourth inning. Hall's effort was even more impressive coming directly after a game one where EHC had scored 16 runs on 21 hits.
His nine-inning complete game is a first for an EMU hurler since current pitching coach Adam Posey did it as a senior in 2014. Hall is now 3-2 on the season with a 3.82 earned run average.
Eastern Mennonite won 2-of-3 conference games last week and is 11-11 on the season and 2-5 in the ODAC. The Royals head to No. 16 Shenandoah University on Tuesday, playing a single game at 4:00pm. The men return to Harrisonburg for homes game on Wednesdady and Thursday.
