Pitcher of the Week
Nathan Karns, Coppell Copperheads
Karns captured Pitcher of the Week honors with one spectacular start against the East Texas Pump Jacks on July 24. Karns struck out a TCL season-high 15 batters in seven innings of work, carrying a no-hitter into the seventh inning before allowing an infield single. He gave up just the one hit and walked three, surrendering a pair of unearned runs in Coppell’s come-from-behind victory. The junior righthander was a member of the Texas Tech rotation in the spring.
