IOWA CITY – University of Iowa baseball player Tim Gudex has been named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week. The announcement came from the Big Ten Conference office.
Gudex, a senior closer from Appleton, WI, picked up two wins and a save last week, while allowing just three base runners (one hit, one walk and one hit batsman) in four games.
For the week, opposing hitters had a .033 batting average against the relief pitcher. In eight Iowa wins this year, Gudex has recorded a win or a save in seven contests and has maintained a perfect ERA of 0.00.
The Hawkeyes open their home season this weekend with a three-game series against IPFW. Friday’s home debut is scheduled for 6 p.m.
