Junior Jake Rudnicki took home the Mid-American Conference Pitcher of the week after his stellar performance on the mound for Ohio.

Rudnicki helped Ohio (19-20, 5-7 MAC) finish with three victories in four games last week with his performance out of the bullpen, going 2-0 with four strikeouts while allowing just six hits, four walks and no runs over three appearances and 4.2 innings of work.

Rudnicki threw one scoreless inning of relief last Wednesday in an 11-10 win in 10 innings over longtime rival Marshall, striking out two while giving up a hit and a walk.

On Friday, Rudnicki picked up his first victory on the mound of the 2017 season in a 9-5 win over Division archrival Miami, striking out one while surrendering just three hits and two walks in 1.2 frames.

Rudnicki improved to 2-3 on the year by earning the win on the mound in the series finale on Sunday, a 3-2 win that allowed the Bobcats to clinch the weekend series from the RedHawks.

He struck out one while giving up two hits and a walk in two scoreless frames of relief.

Ohio returns to action Friday, April 28th for a three-game away series at Western Michigan.
