Ben Pope, '12 (pictured), a right-hander from Maryville, Tenn. (Alcoa HS), has been named Midwest Conference Pitcher of the Week.

Pope fired a complete-game four-hitter in a 4-0 victory over Illinois College Saturday, guaranteeing the Pioneers at least a tie of the Midwest Conference South Division. He fanned four batters as Grinnell moved to 8-0 in league play and 17-11 overall.
