CHICAGO, Ill. - The Illinois Tech baseball team earned several weekly honors for its four-game, two-day sweek over Maranatha Baptist on Friday and Saturday. Pitcher/Third Baseman Kyle Bumpass has been named both United States Collegiate Athletic Assocaition Pitcher of the Week and Association of Division III Independents Player of the Week. Cather/Designated Hitter Jonathon Wilcox took home USCAA Position Player of the Week honors.

Bumpass threw a no-hitter in his weekend start, throwing a complete game, seven-inning gem in Friday's first game against the Sabercats. In Tech's 3-0 victory, the junior struck out nine and walked just one, facing just three hitters over the minimum and throwing 69.6% of his pitches for strikes. He also hit .429 with three runs, and RBI, and a stolen base over the four games while making several outstanding plays at third base, factoring into his AD3I Player of the Week award as well.

Wilcox had an impressive four games at the plate, going 5-for-9 (.556) with three doubles, five RBIs, three runs scored, and a stolen base. Wilcox had an OBP of .667 and slugging percentage of .889, combining for an OPS of 1.556. 

Baseball is back in action today at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Live audio, video, and stats are available for the 4:00 p.m. eastern time (3:00 p.m. central time) contest.
