MACON, Ga. - Senior captain Matt Hamann (Northbrook, Ill.) picked up the final Atlantic Sun Conference Pitcher of the Week honor of the season on Monday. The starting pitcher earned the accolades for the third time this season and the fifth time in his career for his complete game shutout of Lipscomb on Friday.
Hamann helped propel Belmont to its first A-Sun regular season championship and a number one seed in this weekend's conference tournament, allowing just four hits and striking out 10 Bisons en route to a 5-0 Bruin victory.
The right-hander earned his fourth win of the season on his fifth complete game of 2012. It marked the 22nd win of his career, placing him tied for third in Belmont's all-time record books. Just like last year, Hamann and the Bruins will play Stetson in the first round of the conference tournament on Wednesday.
