COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado State sophomore Holly Reinke earned her first career Mountain West Softball Pitcher of the Week honor after helping the Rams to three victories over the weekend at the UTSA Classic in San Antonio, Texas. The Mountain West made the announcement Tuesday morning.
Reinke, a native of Littleton, Colo., appeared in four of CSU’s five games, including one start. She earned two wins and picked up her first save of the season, contributing to all three of the Rams’ victories. Additionally, Reinke limited opponents to two earned runs over 12 innings (1.17 ERA), and a .186 batting average. She struck out 10.
During the weekend opener, against Rutgers, she entered the game in the sixth inning trailing 2-0. She threw two scoreless innings, and earned the win thanks to a walk-off Chelsea O’Connor home run.
On Saturday, in a win over Wichita State, Reinke tossed a complete game, allowing just six base runners and two earned runs while striking out four. Later that day, she allowed just one base runner over two frames, earning the save against UTSA.
Two weeks into the season, Reinke owns a perfect 4-0 record. She holds a 1.20 ERA, and has recorded two complete games, one shutout and 20 strikeouts. Her .185 opposing batting average leads the MW, while her ERA and win total ranks second. She ranks sixth for strikeouts.
The Rams are off to a 7-3 start, their best in six seasons. CSU will return to the field Feb. 28 for the start of the three-day San Diego Classic I.
