PHILADELPHIA - Sophomore Chris McNulty has been named the Ivy League Co-Pitcher of the Week as announced by the League on Tuesday.
The southpaw had one of the best outings of his career on Sunday, pitching a complete-game while allowing just one earned run. McNulty scattered seven hits over nine innings and striking out six and walking a batter. He gave up just one extra base hit in keeping the Leopards off balance for the third complete game of his short career.
McNulty is 2-1 on the season and has allowed just three walks in 25.1 innings of work while fanning 18 batters. The award is the second time he has been honored by the Ivy League. As a freshman he was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week once.
Senior Tom Grandieri was named to the Ivy League Weekly Honor Roll for his role as a catalyst for the Penn offense last week. He hit .400 on the week, with hits in all five games, and had a pair of multi-hit contests. Against Lafayette on Sunday, Grandieri was all over the place. In the opening game of the doubleheader, he went 3-for-4, scored twice, drove in three RBI and belted his first homerun of the season. In the second game, he had just one hit but walked twice and scored all three times he reached base.
The Quakers look to even their record at .500 when they take on Saint Joseph's on Wednesday at 3 p.m.
