CCU’s Lamando earns title of Freshman All-American

Coastal Carolina pitcher Seth Lamando has been named to the 2013 Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American team, as selected by Collegiate Baseball.

Lamando, the 2013 Big South Baseball Freshman of the Year, becomes the seventh Chanticleer to be a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American, joining Byron Binda (2002), Scott Woodward (2008), Daniel Bowman (2009), Anthony Meo (2009), Taylor Motter (2009) and Ryan Connolly (2010).

Lamando started the year as CCU’s closer before being inserted into the weekend starting rotation the final seven weeks of the season due to injuries to Chanticleers pitchers Tyler Herb and Alex Cunningham. Lamando finished his freshman season pitching in 24 games, starting eighth, with a 5-4 record, two saves, 4.15 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 60.2 innings while opponents only batted .242 off the right-hander.

The Hopewell Junction, N.Y., native ended the 2013 regular season with a 5-3 record, two saves and a 2.96 ERA. Also at the conclusion of the regular season, he ranked seventh in the Big South with a .220 opponent batting average and struck out an impressive 54 batters in 55.0 innings.

In Coastal’s 3-1 start to the season, Lamando earned a save in game one (versus James Madison), a win in game two (versus James Madison) and a save in game four (versus NCAA Regional host Kansas State). In his first career start – March 5 versus Furman, he allowed just three hits and one run in 4.1 innings but was saddled with the loss. He later picked up wins in relief at Wake Forest (1.2 innings with no hits or walks) and versus in the second game versus Liberty (2.1 innings, 3 hits, 1 run, 0 walks, 3 strikeouts).

After the Furman mid-week start, Lamando went on a dominant span where he pitched in 11 games, including his first weekend start at Winthrop, went 3-0 with a 1.06 ERA (two earned runs, seven runs total), two walks and 15 strikeouts.

In Lamando’s first outing as a weekend starter, he earned the win at Winthrop in his new role, allowing three hits and one unearned run in 5.0 innings. He then had two quality starts in a three-game span, but was 0-2. He struck out a career-high nine with five hits and three runs in 6.0 innings in a 4-3 loss versus Radford.

After suffering a loss at Presbyterian, he did not get a decision in a start at nationally-ranked Georgia Tech despite allowing one hit in five-plus innings pitched with a walk and six strikeouts. He closed the regular season by getting a win at Charleston Southern, pitching a career-high 7.1 innings and allowing five hits (two solo home runs) in a 6-2 victory.
