    ST. LOUIS - SIU starting pitcher Cody Forsythe was named Missouri Valley Conference Pitcher of the Week on Monday.

    On Saturday Cody Forsythe tossed the Salukis' first complete game, nine-inning shutout since 2008. The southpaw scattered four singles and a double in a 4-0 win over Creighton. Only four runners reached second base, and no Jays reached third base in the game.

    Forsythe also struck out five batters. He retired seven of the last eight and 12 of the last 14 batters of the game. It was his fourth career complete game and lowered his ERA to 1.16 in four conference starts. Over the last two seasons, Forsythe is now 9-1 with a 1.43 ERA in 11 MVC starts.

    Forsythe is the first Saluki to be named MVC Pitcher of the Week in 2012. It is the second time in his career he has earned the honor, with the first time coming on April 25, 2011. He is the first Saluki to be named MVC Pitcher of the Week more than once since current SIU pitching coach P.J. Finigan did it three times in 2005.
