Daniels Chosen as Co-Pitcher of the Week

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – For the second time this season, SIUE junior pitcher Ryan Daniels (St. Louis) has been named as the Ohio Valley Conference Pitcher of the Week. Daniels shares the weekly award with Eastern Illinois' Joe Greenfield. Both pitchers tossed complete games last week.

Daniels was dominant in a Friday start against Austin Peay, paving the way for the Cougars to earn their first-ever OVC tournament bid. The right-hander tossed his fourth complete game of the season and the first shutout of his career in a 1-0 win. He allowed two hits, no walks, and struck out seven. He did not allow a hit through the game's first 6 2/3 innings. Both of the hits he surrendered came in the seventh, marking the only time the Govs had more than a single base runner in an inning.

The Cougars' No. 1 starter all season, Daniels finished the regular season 7-0 with a 3.36 earned run average, which was fourth-best in the OVC. His four complete games tied for the most in the league.

Daniels also was chosen as Pitcher of the Week March 31. Daniels and Greenfield join Morehead State's Kane Sweeney (Player of the Week) as the weekly award winners.

SIUE baseball earned the No. 4 seed at the OVC Tournament and opens play Wednesday against fifth-seeded Morehead State at 3 p.m. in Jackson, Tennessee. The game is available on WSIE 88.7 FM and online via the SIUE Cougar Network. Live video is available at the OVC Digital Network
