Maryland baseball freshman Pitcher Jason Savacool was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the second time this season on Wednesday.

Savacool pitched a complete game Sunday, allowing just five hits and one earned run, and no walks. He leads the Terps with a 3-0 record on the mound and a total of 23.2 innings pitched, including two complete games.

The right-handed powerhouse became the first freshman since 2015 to throw multiple complete games during their first season in a “power” conference. Savacool also becomes the only freshman out of eleven pitchers nationally to pitch two complete games this season.

After a close 6-5 loss to Penn State on Sunday, Maryland came out on top with a 7-1 win Monday. The Terps will take on Iowa and Ohio State next weekend in a series of four games starting Saturday, March 27th. Savacool will undoubtedly be a force to be reckoned with as the newcomer is high on Big Ten’s radar.
