Freshman Danny Hernandez appeared in three of Compton’s four games last week, earning a win and a pair of saves.
The right-handed hurler counted five innings of scoreless relief on the mound, fanning four. He earned a three-inning save on Thursday before throwing in both games of Saturday’s doubleheader for an inning of relief each, facing the minimum number of batters for each game.
Hernandez has made a team-leading 16 appearances this season, starting two, and throwing 43.0 total innings. He has the second-most strikeouts on the team, averaging 5.02 per nine innings pitched, and boasts the team’s lowest ERA.
