Wins Award For The First Time In His Career
LANCASTER, Pa. – Senior pitcher P.J. Mikulus (Plainview, N.Y./Chaminade), who pitched Washington's first nine-inning no-hitter since 1970 this past Saturday, has been named the Centennial Conference Pitcher of the Week for the week of April 9-15. This is the first time the senior has won the conference's weekly award.
Mikulus pitched the 16th no-hitter in Centennial history in the Shoremen's 7-0 victory at Dickinson on Saturday in game one of the doubleheader. He retired the first 13 and the last 14 batters he faced with only a fielding error in the fifth preventing a perfect game. He struck out seven in posting the second no-hitter this season by a Washington pitcher.
He is the second Washington pitcher to earn the award this season as junior Nick Roberti garnered the award on March 19. Roberti threw the team's first no-hitter this season in a 13-0 win over Bethany on March 16 in game two of a twinbill in Florida.
