Youngstown State senior right-hander Robert Switka has been named the Horizon League Pitcher of the Week for the period of Feb. 18-24, the league office announced on Thursday.
Switka, a Youngstown native, threw five innings of one-hit ball last Sunday against Wake Forest. He allowed an infield single in the third and left the game with a 3-0 lead. The Demon Deacons hit just .077 against him.
The Penguins will play a four-game series at Charlotte starting Friday.
