The Big Ten awarded its weekly baseball honors on Monday, selecting Nebraska’s Jake Meyers as the conference’s ‘Pitcher of the Week.’ Meyers, a junior from Omaha, Nebraska, tossed a complete-game shutout in the Huskers’ 10-0 win over Western Carolina on Sunday.
Meyers’ pitched a career-high 9.0 innings, striking out four batters and only allowing five hits and one walk. He only needed 104 pitches for the complete game, including 10 pitches or less in an inning four times.
The last Husker to be named Big Ten ‘Pitcher of the Week’ was Matt Waldron on May 16, 2016. Meyers is also the first Husker since Waldron to record a complete-game shutout.
This is Meyers’ first career ‘Pitcher of the Week’ honor.
