Baylor Softball’s Selman Earns Third Big 12 Pitcher of the Week

Baylor softball pitcher Kelsee Selman was named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week for the second-straight week, announced Tuesday by the conference office.

For Selman, the senior work continued to carry the bulk of the workload for the pitching staff, continuing her streak for making an appearance in every Big 12 game for Baylor this season. The Lady Bears have gone 4-0 in conference games Selman has started.

The Lufkin, Texas, native finished the week with the lowest ERA of conference pitchers that logged 10 or more innings of work on the week, posting the fifth-lowest mark, overall.

Selman made three appearances, all in the series with Texas Tech, going 2-0 and adding her third save of the season. She closed out the week with a 0.49 ERA, 2-0 record, 14.1 innings pitched, a total of seven hits allowed, just one run allowed, and 18 strikeouts to two walks.

She worked her ninth complete game of the season, including her third complete shutout, going 7.0 innings in game three vs. Texas Tech, allowing just two hits and striking out five. Selman carried a no-hitter through 4.2 frames, with an infield bloop single breaking up the no-hit bid.

Selman has broken away from the pack with Big 12 leading marks in both ERA (1.34) and wins (17).

The award is the third for the senior, in her second season at Baylor after transferring from LSU. Selman previously double-dipped for both Big 12 and national pitcher of the week on March 7 and won her second Big 12 weekly honor on March 28. She is the first and only player to earn multiple Big 12 weekly honors this season.

Selman is Baylor’s third Big 12 Pitcher of the Week for 2017, giving Baylor five total awards through the first eight weeks of the season, tying for the most in the conference.
