www.RaginCajuns.com - For the seventh time this season, Louisianaâ€™s Raginâ€™ Cajuns ace Ashley Brignac has been named Sun Belt Pitcher of the Week.
The River Ridge native fired off her sixth career no-hitter in game one of the Cajuns sweep of La.-Monroe. The 3-0 win clinched the Cajunsâ€™ 10th Sun Belt Regular Season Championship. Brignac struck out 13 and walked just two in the complete game effort.
She returned on Sunday to throw a two-hit, complete game shutout in the Cajuns 5-0 win. The sweep now gives the Cajuns at least one sweep of every member of the Sun Belt.
Overall on the weekend, Brignac threw 14.0 scoreless innings while striking out 20 and allowing just six base runners. She is currently in the midst of 20.1 consecutive scoreless innings.
Brignac has won the Sun Beltâ€™s weekly award for the seventh time in 13 weeks. Only one other pitcher in the league has won two awards.
The Cajuns return to the diamond this week as they host the Sun Belt Tournament at Lamson Park. The Cajuns will be seeking their 11th Sun Belt Tournament Championship in 12 years.
