CONWAY, AR- University of Central Arkansas right hander Chris Caudle earned the Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week honors on Monday after throwing a one-hit shutout against Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday.
Caudle, a junior from Greenwood and a transfer from Crowder College, allowed a third-inning infield single as the Lions’ only hit. He retired the final 16 batters of the game, striking out five and walking just one batter.
Caudle, who carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning earlier this season against Illinois State, improved to 5-2 overall with his third complete game of the season. He lowered his earned-run average to 2.66 on the season. Caudle has allowed seven or less hits in five of his six starts this season.
UCA beat SLU 3-0 on Saturday in a game that took only 1:35 with Caudle throwing just 97 pitches.
