D1Baseball/AstroTurf Player Of The Week: San Francisco’s Landen BourassaAwards
It has been quite the last two weeks for premier pitching performances in college baseball, and San Francisco veteran righthander Landen Bourassa is the latest to toss an absolute gem. For that and more, he’s this week’s D1Baseball/AstroTurf National Player of the Week.
Bourassa is a 6-foot-4, 195-pounder, who was terrific in a shutout win over Portland last weekend. He struck out 16, didn’t walk anyone and allowed just three hits in the complete game performance. He also threw 108 pitches and showed excellent stuff against the Pilots. Stuff-wise, he was anywhere from 88-91 and up to 92-93 mph with the fastball, along with good command of a 78-81 mph slider and a 74-76 mph wipeout curveball. The changeup was a very good offering for Bourassa as well. Furthermore, Bourassa allowed just one runner to get past second base.
For the season, the righty now has a 3.12 ERA in 60.2 innings, along with 54 strikeouts, 15 walks and teams are hitting him at a .239 clip.
