Arizona's Chase Silseth wins Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week after scoreless outing

Arizona pitcher Chase Silseth (29) deals to open the Wildcats night against Utah in the first inning of their Pac-12 game at Hi Corbett Field, Tucson, Ariz., April 30, 2021.

Arizona starting pitcher Chase Silseth won the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week award for the first time in his career after throwing seven scoreless innings in the Wildcats' 11-1 home win over Utah on Friday. 

Silseth carried a no-hit bid into the fifth inning against the Utes before surrendering an infield single. He ended his night allowing just two hits with eight strikeouts, the third-most punch outs he's had in a start this year.

The UA sophomore improved his record at Hi Corbett Field this season to 7-0 with minuscule 1.90 ERA. He ranks second in the Pac-12 in wins (7) and tied for sixth in strikeouts (67). 

Silseth becomes the second Wildcat pitcher to win the conference award this season, joining relief pitcher Chandler Murphy who won on April 6. It's just the second time in program history the Cats have had two or more pitchers earn the award in a single season.

Arizona (30-11) is riding a nine-game win streak and sits atop the Pac-12 standings. It'll look to extend the win streak to double digits on Tuesday when the team hosts Grand Canyon University at 6 p.m. from Hi Corbett Field.
