Pitcher of the Week
Seth Whitehill, Penn State
P, Jr., Bellefonte, Pa./Bellefonte
Whitehill tossed seven innings of shutout ball as Penn State defeated Purdue, 4-1, on Saturday. The junior struck out a season-high seven batters and did not allow a walk as he recorded a scoreless start for the third time this season. The win was the second in a row for the right-hander as he is 4-0 in his last five starts, all of which have been for Nittany Lion victories. Penn State has posted a win in each of Whitehill's five conference starts this season. Receiving his first career weekly honor, Whitehill is the fourth different Penn State pitcher to be recognized this year.
