HAMMOND, Ind. & WESTVILLE, Ind. – Purdue University Northwest baseball pitcher Josh Arnold received Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week after a stellar performance on the mound last week.
Arnold (Lowell, Ind./Lowell) went 1-0 on the week with a 0.00 ERA through 11 innings including a nine-inning shutout against St. Francis. Arnold held opponents batters to a .184 batting average without allowing an extra base hit.
The 6-foot-1 lefthander is having a great sophomore season on the mound for the Black and Gold, owning a 3-1 record with a 2.04 ERA and 27 strikeouts through 53 innings pitched on the season.
This marks the first POW honor for Arnold and second for the Black and Gold after Matt Sandoval earned his first CCAC Pitcher of the Week award earlier in the season.
PNW faces off with St. Francis (Ill.) for its regular season finale Tuesday at 6 p.m. (CT).
