PITTSBURGH -- Point Park University senior right-handed pitcher Isaiah Marsh was named the KIAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week April 7-13 after his five-hit shutout of Asbury (Ky.) last Friday, April 11.
Marsh is a senior from Clear Brook, Va., and the No. 2 starting pitcher in the rotation of the No. 25 Pioneers (31-12, 14-4 KIAC). He picked up his first shutout of the year by blanking Asbury on five hits, five strikeouts and no walks.
The complete-game win -- his fifth complete game in eight starts this year -- lasted just one hour and 35 minutes. Marsh made very quick work of the Eagles considering the Point Park offense still put up a lot of runs in the 13-0 win.
The win improved Marsh to 6-1 and lowered his ERA to 2.92, which ranks fourth in the KIAC. He is third in the conference in strikeouts (38) and opponent's batting average (.235).
The Point Park pitching staff, which leads the KIAC in team ERA (3.34) and opponent's average (.247), has had the KIAC Pitcher of the Week in five of the seven weeks this year. Marsh is the fourth different Pioneers pitcher to get the honor this year joining Manny Perdomo, Alex Mateo (twice) and Jake Horew.
