Fouts Becomes Second Bearcat Hurler To Be Honored as MIAA Pitcher of the Week

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Northwest Missouri State senior pitcher Travis Fouts (Peck, Idaho), a 5-foot-10, 190-pound senior was credited with Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) Pitcher of the Week honors (May 1-7), announced today by the conference offices. Fouts tossed a nine-inning, five-hit shutout against the then-No. 7 Central Missouri State Mules last Friday night (May 5).

He struck out a career-high seven and walked three as he recorded the team's only nine-inning complete game of the season.

It was the first shutout tossed against CMSU since Rice (Texas) -- currently the No. 1 team in the Division I poll -- blanked the Mules on Feb. 4.

The 8-0 win snapped an 11-game losing skid by the Bearcats against Central Missouri State, and sparked a three-game winning streak against the Mules -- the first by Northwest since 1987-88.

He is a graduate of Pocatello (Idaho)-Highland High School, and transferred to Northwest from North Idaho College.
