After coming up three outs shy of recording his second consecutive no-hitter, LSU senior pitcher Jared Poché was recognized for the second straight week as a National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.

Poché limited Maryland to one hit in eight innings Saturday. That hit came on a chopper up the middle of the field to start the ninth inning.

On the season, Poché has allowed one hit in 15 innings pitched. Opposing players are batting just .021 against him.

Among the players Poché shared the honor with was Sacramento State pitcher Justin Dillon, who no-hit Northern Kentucky while striking out 13, and Missisippi State outfielder Brent Rooker, who went 9-for-19 with three home runs and 14 RBI last week.
