ST. LOUIS (WTWO/WAWV) – Indiana State right-hander Luke Patzner became the second Sycamore to receive Missouri Valley Conference Pitcher of the Week honors as the redshirt sophomore picked up the recognition on Monday afternoon.
Patzner hurled a three-hitter in Sunday’s series finale 8-1 win over Missouri State as the Urbandale, Iowa native became the first pitcher in the MVC this season to throw a complete 9.0-inning game. Patzner struck out six and allowed just two runners into scoring position after the third inning in a dominant performance on a windy day at Bob Warn Field.
