In case you were wondering....Oregon State and Stanford meet in what no doubt will be a huge three- game series Friday May 11th in Corvallis.

Luke Heimlich looks like he is once again unstoppable. The Lefty picks up Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week honors. The highlights are above and the official Oregon State release is below.


The Oregon State senior left-hander Luke Heimlich has been named the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week, it was announced on Monday.

 

Heimlich struck out a career-high 13 batters in Oregon State’s 16-1 win in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader against Washington. He did not issue a walk in 7 1/3 innings and held the Huskies to four hits and a run.

 

The Puyallup, Wash., native is one of 31 pitchers nationally with five wins; he’s the only one from the Pac-12.

 

He also leads the Pac-12 with 44 strikeouts and has 270 for his career, good for fifth all-time at Oregon State. He is two behind No. 4 Dallas Buck, who tallied 272 from 2004-06.

 

The honor is the fifth of Heimlich’s career, tying him with Chris Pine for the third-most by an Oregon State pitcher. Beaver pitchers have been recognized 89 times since 1986, the most among Pac-12 programs.

 

Heimlich was the 2017 Pac-12 Pitcher of the Year, and, a speech communication major, is a two-time All-Academic selection, earning first-team honors as a junior.

 

Next UpOregon State hits the road for a three-game series at Utah that begins Thursday at 5 p.m. PT (6 p.m. in Utah). A live video stream will be available at osubeavers.com (provided by Utah), and catch the call from Mike Parker by tuning into the Beaver Sports Network and TuneIn.
