After holding Hartford to two unearned runs on six hits with four strikeouts in the Jaspers’ home-opening victory on March 7, she retired nine straight Stetson hitters between the second and fourth innings at the Stetson Westin Invitational on Friday night. Matazinsky then tossed a five-inning complete game in the tournament finale against Columbia on Sunday, limiting the Lions to one run on six hits while striking out four and not issuing a walk. She also hit a combined .318 with four RBIs over the course of seven games during the week.
Galvan, meanwhile, was outstanding in Manhattan’s 4-2 win over Fordham on March 8. He struck out seven in the complete game victory. Galvan faced the minimum 20 batters over his first 6.2 innings of work and didn’t walk a batter in the seven-inning effort while yielding two runs on four hits. On the year, he is 1-1 with eight strikeouts and a 3.12 ERA. Galvan has held opposing hitters to a .200 batting average this season.
