Southland Honors SLU's Cedotal

HAMMOND, LA (WVUE) -

Southeastern southpaw Kyle Cedotal was named the Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced Monday.

Cedotal carried a perfect game into the eighth inning of the Lions' Southland Conference opener against UIW. Facing the minimum number of batters in his eight innings of work, he fell one strikeout shy of tying his career high.

The senior from Denham Springs retired the first 22 batters he faced and at one point fanned seven-consecutive batters. He earned the win in the 11-0 decision, combining with freshman Cory Gaconi on the 16th 1-hitter in school history.

It is the second time this season Cedotal has earned the conference's Pitcher of the Week Award.

The Lions are 10-6 and face South Alabama Tuesday night.
