Tybee Denton earns Player of the Week award number two on the season and number five of her career. Five POW awards makes her one of only eight athletes in BLITZ history, spanning 11 years, to earn that many. This time, as well as the others, she’s been more than deserving.

Over the past three games, Denton was 3-0 with a 0.61 ERA and 54 strikeouts in just 23 innings of work. She also hit .600 with a pair of homers and 4 RBI, adding a double.

The most impressive performance of her career was against #1-ranked Jefferson in a battle of top-ranked opponents. It was on the road, and Denton, who always aspired to do it, checked one off her bucket list with a 21-strikeout game. Meaning every single out made was on strikeout. If that wasn’t enough, she led the 9-0 win with a pair of homeruns, including one that about busted out a window on the team’s bus.

This is Hix’s first Player of the Week award of her career.
