Pittard Earns NCAC Player of the Week Honors

DePauw junior shortstop Reid Pittard (Lafayette, Ind.) helped spark a perfect 5-0 week for the Tigers, which included a four-game NCAC West sweep of arch-rival Wabash, for NCAC Baseball Player of the Week honors.

In the four games against the Little Giants, Pittard hit 10-for-13 at the plate with one double, four RBI and five runs scored. In the final game of the series, Pittard went a perfect 4-for-4 with four singles and three RBI.

Pittard, who had two or more hits in each game, finished the week with one double, six RBI and seven runs scored.

The Tigers improved their record to over .500 at 18-15 overall and 8-8 in the NCAC West. They travel to Washington (Mo.) next weekend before cross-over play begins.
