Freshman phenomenon pitcher Larson Kindreich has excelled over the last portion of the Eagles’ 2019 season. His talents were shown particularly in one of the Eagles’ most recent games. Kindreich threw a one-hit shutout victory (8-0) against the Concordia University Eagles on April 27, granting him the honors of the PacWest weekly award alongside teammate sophomore Jackson Collins.

Kindreich allowed for only one hit during his seven-inning shutout against CUI. To expand on his dominance from the plate, Kindreich also struck out nine batters and sent 16 batters in a row back to the dugout.

The young pitcher has been impactful in contributing to his team’s 27-18 winning record. Kindreich looks to continue his stellar performance from the hill in the Eagles’ upcoming games for the remainder of the season.

Kindreich is a new face to Eagles baseball, but he has made his presence known throughout this season through his powerful pitching, and for that, he has earned the title of Chimes Athlete of the Week.
