Beatty Honored For Outstanding Pitching

Max Beatty, sophomore pitcher for the Pacific Lutheran baseball team, has been named this week's Northwest Conference Student-Athlete of the Week.  The hard-throwing righty out of Vancouver, Wash. pictehd a gem on Saturday against the University of Puget Sound.  Beatty threw a complete-game five-hitter against the Loggers.  He didn't allow more than one hit in an inning, and only two Logger base runners got as far as second base, with none reaching third. 

The win improves Beatty's overall record to 4-3 this season with a team leading 2.32 ERA through nine games of work.  It was also his first shutout of the season. 

Beatty and the Lutes are next in action this weekend when they take on Lewis & Clark College in a three-game set in Portland, Ore.
