Cuyahoga Community College | Softball Pitcher of the Week
Back-to-back for Baglia after winning her second straight weekly laurel. Her latest recognition was fueled by Cuyahoga’s first perfect game in school history. Baglia blanked Edison State on the road for five innings in a 12-0 truncated mercy rule game, striking out five of the 15 batters faced with no hits or walks. She followed that up with a scoreless inning of relief and then another winning start which included seven innings and a lone run allowed. Despite a not-so-good fourth appearance to conclude the week, Baglia registered an overall stat line of: 2-0, 16.0 IP, 12H, 7 R, 7 ER, BB, 12 K.
