Hood Named Landmark Baseball Pitcher of the Week

TOWSON, Md. – After his outing against No. 13 Keystone in Florida on Saturday, Susquehanna baseball sophomore Casey Hood (Shrewsbury, Pa. / Susquehannock) has been named the Landmark Conference Pitcher of the Week for the period ending March 10.

Hood was dominating against the Giants, pitching 8.2 innings and allowing only one unearned run in the Crusaders' 4-1 upset victory. He gave up just four hits and struck out a career-high nine batters for his first win of the season.

In 2013, Hood has appeared in three games and has thrown 15.2 innings. He has compiled 18 strikeouts and has surrendered only one extra-base hit.

Hood and SU (3-8) travel to Neumann on Thursday at 3:30 p.m.
