Christian Dahlstrom Named Regent of the Week
2018 Apr 23
Freshman relief pitcher Christian Dahlstrom (Clermont, Fla.) has been named Regent of the Week for the week ending April 22, 2018. Dahlstrom was again unhittable for the Regents out of the bullpen last week. The freshman right-hander tossed 6.1 shutout innings and did not allow a hit in his three relief appearances. He struck out two of the three batters he faced in his one inning of work on Friday against Maranatha. Dahlstrom then threw the final two innings on Saturday against Edgewood, striking out two and helping preserve Rockford's 6-1 win. His lone save of the week came on Sunday when he tossed the final 3.1 innings and struck out five against Marian. Dahlstrom entered with the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth and was able to get out of the jam without allowing a run. He then went on to throw the rest of the game to remain a perfect 5-for-5 in save opportunities this season and tie the RU single-season saves record. For the week he allowed no runs and no hits while striking out nine and walking two. The freshman has yet to allow an earned run in his ten innings of work this year. He has struck out fifteen in his eight appearances and walked only three.
