CMU's Thomas named Heart Conference Player of the Week
FAYETTE – Central Methodist University junior pitcher Josh Thomas earned the Heart of America Athletic Conference’s Player of the Week honors. Thomas pitched all seven innings Friday against University of Saint Mary.
The Murray State University transfer was dialed in against the Spires allowing just one earned run on two hits. He walked only one batter and struck out a season-high 10 in the 5-1 victory.
Thomas is now 1-1 on the year with a 2.77 ERA in two early season starts.
“Josh is off to a very solid start for us,” CMU head baseball coach Nate Breland said to the media. “He really had an outstanding performance this past weekend.”
The Eagles will return to the diamond for a double-header Wednesday in St. Louis vs. Harris-Stowe State University. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.
