For the second week in a row, Kansas University junior baseball relief pitcher Jordan Piché has been named the Big 12 Conference’s Newcomer of the Week. Piché recorded a win and a save in KU’s first series victory over Texas since 2009 this past weekend.
Piché, a 6-foot-1 right-handed pitcher from Greeley, Colo., did not allow a run in six innings, which spanned two relief appearances.
The 6-foot-1 righty currently leads the Big 12 with a 0.49 ERA in 36 2/3 innings and is tied for the conference lead with seven saves.
Piché is 5-1 with 25 strikeouts and three walks in 17 relief appearances.
