MM 3.25: Freshman Pitcher Jason Savacool Named Freshman of the Week

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.
