MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – Senior Jake Stinnett has been selected the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) National Pitcher of the Week, the NCBWA board announced Tuesday.
Stinnett threw Maryland’s seventh no-hitter all-time and the first since Scott Swinson no-hit Delaware on May 13, 2008 in the Terps’ 4-0 shutout of Massachusetts. It was Maryland’s first no-hitter at home since five Terrapin pitchers combined to no-hit Coppin State on March 28, 2007.
The native of Vista, Calif., only faced two batters over the minimum, both of whom walked. Stinnett struck out nine batters.
Maryland travels to No. 2 Florida State on Friday to begin a three-game series in Tallahassee.
