COLUMBUS, Ohio – Seth Lonsway was named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week, the conference office announced Monday afternoon. The redshirt freshman left-handed pitcher claims his second weekly award of the season. Ohio State has now collected seven Big Ten weekly awards on the year, the second-most in the conference in 2019.

Lonsway, from Celina, Ohio, was dominant on the mound vs. Penn State in game one of a doubleheader last Saturday at Bill Davis Stadium. He fanned a season-high 13 hitters in eight scoreless innings and limited the PSU bats to five hits with one walk. Lonsway is 6-4 on the year with a 4.35 ERA and 96 strikeouts in 70.1 innings pitched. Lonsway is second in the league in strikeouts (96) and leads the conference in batters struck out looking (31).

Ohio State concludes the 2019 regular season with four road games this week. The Buckeyes hit the road for a final midweek contest at Youngstown State Tuesday night at Eastwood Field before traveling to West Lafayette, Ind., for a three-game Big Ten series at Purdue Thursday-Saturday.
