FIU's Logan Allen named USA Conference Pitcher of the Week
After being named to USA Baseball's Golden Spikes Midseason Watch List last week, Logan Allen was named Conference USA's Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced during a news conference.
Allen recently had a career night striking out 13 Southern Miss batters over six innings of three-run ball in the 6-4 Panthers’ victory. The 13 strikeouts are a career-best. Allen headlined a game in which the Panther pitching staff struck out 18 Golden Eagles which was the most ever against a C-USA opponent and the most in a game since 2013.   
The C-USA Pitcher of the Week award is Allen's third this season and fourth of his career.
The midseason All-American has posted a 1.81 ERA on the season and 85 strikeouts in 54.2 innings pitched for a 13.99 strikeouts-per-nine-innings mark which ranks seventh in the country and betters the next best pitcher in C-USA by almost two strikeouts. 
Allen, a Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Week and a Perfect Game Midseason All-American, was named to the Golden Spikes Award Midseason Watch List last month.
Presented annually to the top amateur player in the nation by USA Baseball, the 42nd Golden Spikes Award will be announced on June 14th. 
Allen is also batting .319 in 47 appearances at the plate this season with a homer, three doubles and a pair of RBIs.
