Missouri State starter Ross Detwiler took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of the Bears game against Creighton last week. He later lost the no-hitter but kept the one-hitter intact. Detwiler struck out eight and retired the side in six of the nine innings. The Bears eventually won the game 3-1.
Tuesday, it was announced that Detwiler’s accomplishment didn’t go unnoticed as he was named the “Louisville Slugger” National Player of the Week.
The lefty was also named to the all-tournament team, the all-conference honorable mention list, and was named Missouri Valley Conference pitcher of the week for the week of May 8.
The Bears finished this year 33-22 and came in second in the regular season and the conference tourney.
