RUSSELLVILLE, ARK. - East Central University baseball sophomore Shae Edmonds has been named the Great American Conference Pitcher of the Week for April 5 after helping the Tigers to a series win over Oklahoma Baptist (April 1-2).
Edmonds held the Bison to two hits in a complete-game shutout victory (1-0). The Burnet, Texas native allowed a leadoff single, but then retired the next 14. Edmonds struck out three as he limited a prolific Oklahoma Baptist offense to just a .087 average for the game.
The shutout loss for OBU was the first in 229 games, with the streak dating back to 2012.
