May 9, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Joey DeNato earns Pitcher and Freshman of the Week accolades after a stellar outing in his first career appearance as a Friday night starter.
The left-hander tossed eight shutout innings against Northwestern, striking out seven while scattering six hits and three walks. Forcing the opposition into two double plays and registering his 10th pickoff of the year, DeNato faced just 30 batters in the outing, picking up his sixth win of the season, which is tied for third in the Big Ten.
Indiana has been represented in Big Ten Weekly Awards eights times this season. This marks DeNato's second Freshman of the Week recognition of the year.
