Lebanon, IL - Trojan pitcher Zach Bedsworth has been named the American Midwest Conference Pitcher of the Week for his outstanding play against Park University and McKendree University.

Bedsworth, a junior right-hander from New Bloomfield, Mo., tossed a pair of AMC shutouts during an important stretch for the Trojans in their push for an AMC Tournament berth.  Bedsworth started his week with a three-hitter on April 18 at Park University.  He struck out seven in the 1-0 road victory for Hannibal-LaGrange.  Bedsworth followed that with a four-hitter in the Trojans' 3-0 triumph at McKendree University.  He fanned five batters in the outing.

Bedsworth and the Trojans now enter post season play as the team will face Park University in the opening game of the AMC Baseball Tournament.  First pitch is scheduled at 9:00 a.m. on the campus of Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis, MO.
