MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU) U-W Milwaukee senior Jake Long has been named the Horizon League baseball pitcher-of-the-week for the second straight time. Long threw a four-hit shutout last week in a 4-nothing victory over Illinois-Chicago. He struck out five, walked three, and gave up no extra-base hits.
Long is the first U-W-M pitcher since 2007 with back-to-back complete games. He has now pitched 17 scoreless innings. He played his high school baseball at Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln.
Wright State senior Garrett Gray is the baseball batter-of-the-week. In softball, the Horizon had no weekly honors – because nobody played. Cold and snowy weather postponed four league-opening series this past weekend.
