After the week they had, it's only right that the TCU pitching staff was honored.

Jake Eissler and Haylen Green were named National Pitchers of the Week by Collegiate Baseball after both flirted with perfection in starts over the weekend. 

Green was also named Co-Big 12 Pitcher of the Week.

In his first start of the season (and second of his career), Eissler held Lamar to one hit and struck out a career-high 12 batters on Saturday. Eissler faced the minimum 18 batters over six innings after picking off the lone base runner at first base after a seeing-eye single to right field.

On Sunday, Green became the fourth TCU pitcher to toss a solo, nine-inning one-hitter. He had a no-hitter entering the ninth before a lead-off single. He struck out a career-high 11 batters and walked one. It's the 19th one-hitter in TCU history.

Four TCU pitchers had previously earned National Player of the Week honors, including Jared Janczak (March 20, 2017),  Preston Morrison (Feb. 23, 2015), Brad Furnish (Feb. 22, 2006) and Lance Broadway (May 24, 2005).
