TUCSON, Ariz. -
After tossing the program's first no-hitter since 1957 in the Black Knights' 8-0 victory over Bucknell on Saturday, Army senior LHP Logan Lee was selected as one of Louisville Slugger's National Players of the Week by "Collegiate Baseball" newspaper on Monday.
Lee became just the fourth Army pitcher in the storied history of the program to throw a no-hitter, joining Bob Neyland (1914), Rod Vitty (1955) and John Rindfleisch (1957).
The fourth-year hurler from Laguna Niguel, Calif., struck out seven batters and carried a perfect game into the seventh inning for the second week in a row. He retired the first 18 Bucknell batters of the contest, before walking the leadoff batter in the seventh. Lee then retired the next three hitters in order to complete Army's first no-hitter in 55 years.
Lee, who boasts a 5-1 record to go along with a 3.53 earned run average, is in the midst of his best season since arriving at West Point. He lists second on the team with three complete-game shutouts, and his 41 strikeouts rank third on the club.
Army (33-9, 16-0 PL) will put its nine-game win streak on the line this Wednesday, April 25, when the Black Knights travel to Fishkill, N.Y., to take on Marist in the seventh annual WRWD Hudson Valley Baseball Classic. First pitch from Dutchess Stadium is slated for 6:05 p.m.
