Earlham sophomore pitcher Joey Gerbus (Liberty Township, Ohio / Finneytown) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week.
Gerbus tossed a four-hit complete game victory in Earlham’s 3-0 road win over Manchester University to close out the 2019 season. The sophomore recorded seven strikeouts while issuing just one walk with an opponent batting average of .129, and allowed just one base runner to advance past second base.
The win was Gerbus’ second complete game shutout victory over an HCAC opponent this season; the sophomore had a three-hit, 11-strikeout performance in a 9-0 complete game win over Mount St. Joseph back on April 16.
The Earlham Quakers (16-21, 8-10 HCAC) concluded their season this past weekend.
