Aces Lukas gives UE back-to-back MVC Pitchers of the Week


For the second week in a row, the University of Evansville baseball team has the Missouri Valley Conference pitcher of the week on their staff. The league has given the honor to junior right-hand pitcher Adam Lukas, who replaces teammate junior left-hand pitcher Nathan Croner, who wore the crown last week.

Lukas turned in a dominating performance against Creighton in last Friday’s series opener at Charles H. Braun Stadium, striking out 12, while holding the potent Bluejay lineup to a single hit in the Aces’ 7-1 victory. Cronercertainly put himself in the running to retain the award, tossing seven shutout frames at Creighton, while striking out seven batters in an 11-0 victory over the Bluejays.

The University of Evansville baseball team is back in action Wednesday night at home against Eastern Illinois University. First pitch is set for 6 p.m.
