TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Indiana State’s Zach Davidson has been named the MVC Pitcher of the Week.
The Hartsburg, Mo. native had a night to remember in the Sycamores’ extra-inning win over Illinois at Bob Warn Field on Tuesday night. The left-hander went 3.1 innings allowing one hit and striking out eight in a dominant showing as ISU completed the season sweep against the Illini.
Davidson entered the game with two outs in the top of the 10th inning with the Sycamores trailing the Fighting Illini. After allowing a single, Davidson struck out the next Illinois hitter to limit the damage in the frame.
After ISU rallied to tie the game up in the bottom of the 10th, Davidson returned to the mound in the 11th and put his mark on history with an immaculate inning against the Illinois lineup. The junior left-hander utilized nine fastballs in striking out the side to send ISU back to the dugout.
