FREELAND, Mich.--By virtue of a four-game sweep of defending conference tournament champion Kalamazoo College, the Adrian College baseball team swept the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association weekly awards that were announced on Monday.
Parsons tossed his second shutout of the season and won his fourth-straight decision by defeating Kalamazoo, 5-0 on Saturday, to set the tone for a Bulldogs' four-game sweep of their archrival. He allowed just five hits (four singles) and struck out nine batters--five of which came with runners on base. He lowered his season earned-run average from 1.47 to 1.18, leads the conference with 37 strikeouts and still has not issued a walk in 38 innings of work.
This marks Parsons' third MIAA Pitcher of the Week (also March 6 and 20) citation this spring and sixth of his career. He is a business management major.
