Army Hurler Tossed Fourth No-Hitter in Academy History Last Weekend

WEST POINT, N.Y. - The weekly accolades continue to pile up for Army senior LHP Logan Lee, who was named the CollegeBaseballInsider.com Northeast Pitcher of the Week on Thursday.

Lee has picked up a slew of national and regional honors this week after tossing Army's first no-hitter since 1957 in the Black Knights' 8-0 victory over Bucknell last Saturday. The Laguna Niguel, Calif., native became just the fourth Army pitcher in the storied history of the program to throw a no-hitter, joining Bob Neyland (1914), Rod Vitty (1955) and John Rindfleisch (1957).

The fourth-year hurler struck out seven batters and carried a perfect game into the seventh inning for the second week in a row. He retired the first 18 Bucknell batters of the contest, before walking the leadoff hitter in the seventh. Lee then retired the next three batters in order to complete Army's first no-hitter in 55 years.

Lee, who boasts a 5-1 record to go along with a 3.53 earned run average, is in the midst of his best season since arriving at West Point. He lists second on the team with three complete-game shutouts, and his 41 strikeouts rank third on the club.

Army (33-10, 16-0 PL) will close out its Patriot League regular-season schedule this weekend (April 28-29) when the Black Knights travel to Worcester, Mass., to face Holy Cross.
