Sophomore Becca Dyer was named North Coast Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week after posting two wins, including a perfect game, last week.
Dyer fired her second-career perfect game in her first start of 2012 on Wednesday against Mount St. Joseph. She tied a career-high by striking out 12 of 15 batters faced. The sophomore struck out the side in the second and fifth frames, and fanned at least two batters in every inning.
Dyer was also the winning pitcher in the 1-0 victory over 12th-ranked DePauw. The 2011 NCAC Pitcher of the Year scattered six hits and struck out five in seven frames against the Tigers. After a pair of hit batters and a single loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the seventh, Dyer stepped in and sent the second pitch of her at bat through the middle to score the game-winning run.
On the week she went 2-1 in 14 innings. She did not allow an earned run or a walk while striking out 19. Opponents batted just .152 against her.
The Big Red (16-12, 3-3 NCAC) returns to the diamond on Tuesday (April 17) when they travel to The College of Wooster for a 3:30 p.m. doubleheader.
