• Kelly was dominant out of the bullpen as he struck out 14 hitters in seven innings over three appearances last week. He recorded a career-high seven strikeouts in a 5-4 win over UC Davis on Friday night. He came into a tied ball game and proceeded to strike out 7-of-10 batters faced to earn his fourth win of the season.
• He followed that with a three-inning stint on Sunday in which he struck out six of the 10 batters he faced. In his first appearance of the week, he struck out one in a scoreless inning in a 10-4 win over FAU. For the week, Kelly allowed just one hit and held opponents to an .048 batting average while finishing with a 14-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
