NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk State sophomore pitcher Michael Parmentier was named the MEAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week on Monday by the conference office.

Parmentier took a no-decision in the Spartans’ 4-3, 10-inning loss at Duke last Wednesday. Making just his third start of the year, Parmentier allowed just two hits and one run in a career-high seven innings pitched. Parmentier walked three batters and struck out five. Parmentier allowed both hits and the run against his pitching line in the first inning. He settled in after that, and retired the final 13 batters he faced before exiting after the seventh inning and the score tied 1-1.

For the year, Parmentier has a 1-3 record and a 4.71 ERA in 20 appearances, 17 of which have come in relief. He has four saves, tied for third-most in the conference, and 64 strikeouts in 49.2 innings pitched. Parmentier ranks second in the MEAC and 15th in the nation in strikeouts per nine innings (11.6).

NSU has now won at least one weekly MEAC award in six straight weeks. Parmentier is the fourth different Spartan pitcher to win the league’s Pitcher of the Week award this year, following starters Matt Outman (Feb. 29, April 11), Jonathan Mauricio (April 18) and Devin Hemmerich (April 25).
