Senior pitcher Sam Delaplane has been named MAC West division pitcher of the week for the Eastern Michigan Eagles.
The senior right-hander threw his first complete game of his career in a 8-2 win over the Ohio Bobcats on Saturday, April 15. He struck out a career high 12 batters on his way to the win while also not giving a walk.
