San Antonio - Trinity senior Jeff Lonnecker has been honored as the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week.
The Tiger right-hander hurled a brilliant game Saturday, as the third-ranked Tigers defeated Centenary (LA) College 15-0 in the top half of a SCAC doubleheader. Lonnecker retired the first 10 Gents players, allowed only one hit over six shutout innings of work, and struck out five batters.
Lonnecker has pitched 26.1 innings this season and is sporting a 2.39 ERA. Over seven appearances and two starts, Lonnecker has struck out 25 players in the process and has allowed only 19 hits. He is 2-0 this season in addition to three saves.
The Tigers will host Hardin-Simmons (TX) University in a non-conference game at 5:00 p.m. Tuesday.
