Creger wins another C-USA weekly pitching honor

Aimee Creger had another remarkable performance over the week and it got her weekly pitching honors for the fifth time this season and the 13th for her career.

A senior ace from Yukon (Okla,), Creger (21-1) announced as the Conference USA Pitcher of the Week by the league office on Monday. She pitched two games in leading Tulsa to a three-game sweep of UTSA late last week in San Antonio, Texas.

In the first game Saturday, Creger pitched 16 strikeouts and allowed two hits in a 2-1 win for the Golden Hurricane (41-5 overall, 15-2 in Conference USA). A solo-shot home run by Haley Henshaw in the 11th inning won the game TU.
Creger tossed a two-hit shutout with 11 Ks in a 4-0 win in the first game on Friday. That game was highlighted by a three run-homer from Catherine Horner.

Creger followed up with a save after relieving Bailey Erwin in the seventh inning to finish Tulsa’s 12-11 win against the Roadrunners (20-25, 7-10) in game two. The Golden Hurricane had to rally from a 9-4 deficit with eight-run inning in the seventh to win. A two-run single by Jill Barrett along with two-shot and triple-homers from Erica Sampson and Julie Kernen, respectively accounted for the bulk of the comeback.

Tulsa will meet in-state rival Oklahoma State Wednesday in Stillwater.
