Louisiana Baseball’s Connor Cooke has been named the Sun Belt Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday morning. 

Cooke pitched a gem for Louisiana against Arkansas State on Saturday, April 10, tossing a two-hit, complete game shutout that included 12 strikeouts and zero walks. 

His outing was the first two-hit, complete game shutout by a Ragin’ Cajun since 2014. The 12 strikeouts by Cooke tied for the second-most among pitchers who have thrown a two-hit, complete game shutout in school history.

In addition to Sun Belt Pitcher of the Week, the right-handed pitcher was also named the LSWA Sports Pitcher of the Week for his outstanding start against A-State.
