Lambert Selected as LEC Baseball Pitcher of the Week
GORHAM, Maine -- For the second time this season, University of Southern Maine junior right-handed pitcher Ben Lambert (Saco, Maine/Thornton Academy) has been selected as the Little East Conference Pitcher of the Week. Lambert shared the weekly honor for the week ending April 21st with Eastern Connecticut State University senior Jordan Muchin. The conference office announced the weekly awards Monday afternoon.
This is the second time in his two seasons with the Huskies that Lambert has received the weekly honor from the LEC.
In his lone appearance last week, Lambert hurled seven shutout innings in the Huskies' 8-3 win over the University of Massachusetts. He allowed just two hits and five walks while striking out seven. The win improved his season record to 5-0 and the seven shutout innings lowered his ERA to 0.67.
In six appearances this season, Lambert has worked 40.1 innings allowing three runs on 19 hits and 20 walks while striking out 42. He is holding the opposition to a paltry .140 batting average.
Southern Maine, winners in seven of its last eight games, is scheduled to host the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth tomorrow afternoon (3:30 p.m.) for a Little East Conference game.
