Luke Buehler Named HCAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology junior Luke Buehler has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week after a strong pair of outings on the Fightin' Engineer spring trip last week.

Buehler picked up the win in a 1-0 victory over Alma on Opening Day last week.  He pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing two hits with nine strikeouts.

His second outing of the week was a relief appearance against Penn State-Abington, which included two scoreless innings and four strikeouts.
