University of Minnesota's Tom Windle (Jr., Maple Grove, Minn./Osseo) has been named the Big Ten Pitcher of the Week, announced by the conference office. It is Windle's second honor and Minnesota's fourth weekly award this season. Sophomore righthanded pitcher Ben Meyer has also received the award twice.

Windle, a 6-foot, 4-inch lefthanded pitcher, threw 103 pitches for his fourth-straight complete game to lead the Golden Gophers to a 3-1 win over the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich. Windle struck out a career-high 13 batters, bettering the 12 he struck out against Texas on March 22, 2013.

In his last four starts, Windle holds a 0.75 earned run average in 36 innings pitched. In that span, he's scattered 13 hits, three earned runs, 34 strikeouts and walked just three batters. On the season, Windle has a 1.44 ERA, a 4-2 record in seven starts. With a team-high 50 innings pitched, Windle has struck out 45 batters this year.

The Golden Gophers are scheduled to play at South Dakota State, April 3 before opening Siebert Field, April 5-7 against Ohio State.
