BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Two Birmingham-Southern baseball student-athletes earned spots on the D3baseball.com Team of the Week, the organization announced on Tuesday.
Senior starting pitcher Jake Cook (Oxford, Ala./Oxford HS) and senior first baseman Tyler Wise (Birmingham, Ala./Spain Park HS) were recognized for their performances during the week of Feb. 25 through March 3.
Cook started the game for the Panthers against Wisconsin-Oshkosh on Friday, March 1. He pitched seven strong, shutout innings in the 4-0 win over the Titans, striking out eight batters and allowing just four hits. Cook did not walk a batter.
For his part, Wise was an offensive power for BSC over the weekend. In three games, Wise was 9-of-14 with two doubles and a triple. He knocked in seven runs and came across to score twice, and in his 14 at-bats he only struck out one time.
It was the first D3baseball.com Team of the Week honor for each player. To view the entire D3baseball.com Team of the Week, click HERE.
