MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Freshman starting pitcher Brett Marcom of Southwestern and senior reliever Ethan Catalani of Schreiner have been named to D3baseball.com's Team of the Week after their outstanding performances in conference play last weekend.
Marcom threw a seven inning no-hitter Saturday afternoon
facing just three batters over the minimum for his second win of
the year and gave Southwestern their first SCAC victory of the year
over Schreiner. He recorded five strikeouts and just two walks
for the complete game shutout.
For Marcom, it was his second win of the season to go to 2-3 and his first complete game shutout of his young career. He leads the team with 17 strikeouts on the year.
Catalani was outstanding for the Mountaineers this past weekend, making an appearance in two contests, pitching 11 total innings to go with 12 strikeouts including earning the wins over DeSales and Southwestern.
Against DeSales, Catalani allowed only one hit in six innings pitched while striking out six. He followed that up with a five inning outing, again only allowing one hit and striking out six, and got out of a huge bases loaded jam to earn the win over Southwestern, Schreiner's first SCAC victory.
