Monday, May 06, 2013

MACON, Ga. – After tossing the first 1-0 complete game shutout in the NCAA Division I era at Lipscomb, Bison senior Josh Cotham has been named the Atlantic Sun Conference Pitcher of the Week as announced by the league on Monday.

Allowing only three hits and a walk in Friday’s win over homestanding Nothern Kentucky, Cotham sliced and diced the Norse batters taking a perfect game into the fifth inning.  After getting out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth, Cotham allowed just one hit the rest of the way.

The Mt. Juliet native also fanned seven batters en route to his second A-Sun Pitcher of the Week honor having collected his first league laurel in 2012.
