Baseball: Burk Named Sun Belt Pitcher Of The Week
Jeff Schneider, Associate Director of Athletics Communications
NEW ORLEANS, La. – Louisiana sophomore right-hander Jack Burk was named the Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday.
Burk was outstanding in the shutout of No. 12 Vanderbilt last Saturday tossing seven scoreless innings with five strikeouts to earn All-Tournament team honors at the Shriners College Classic.
The New Orleans, La., native got better as the game went on retiring nine of the last 10 batters he faced while allowing only one runner to reach third base in the outing. Burk scattered five hits and two walks en route to his first victory of the season and the squad's second win over a ranked team in 2018.
On the season, Burk has a 2.50 ERA in 18 innings with 13 strikeouts and two quality starts. Opponents are hitting just .206 against him.
