Junior pitcher Jace Fry is The Daily Barometer Athlete of the Week after recording the fifth no-hitter in Oregon State history Saturday.

The left-hander used 97 pitches to shutout Northern Illinois, striking out a career-high 10 batters while surrendering just two walks.

The performance gave Oregon State a 2-0 victory, eventually sweeping the four-game series with the Huskies in Goss Stadium over the weekend.

With the win, Fry is now 3-0 on the season. He's sporting a 2.01 earned run average in four starts, including 19 strikeouts in 31 1/3 innings pitched this season.

Fry missed the majority of the season last year coming off Tommy John surgery, but returned in a reliever role for the postseason and has resumed his role in the starting rotation this season.

Fry was a Baseball America Freshman All-America Second Team selection his freshman season, finishing with a 5-3 record and 2.45 ERA in 13 starts.

His only other career shutout came against UCLA on April 21, 2012.

His next start will come against Utah in Pac-12 play this weekend. The Beavers are back in action Tuesday against Ohio State in a nonconference game in Goss Stadium.

First pitch is scheduled 5:35 p.m., and freshman right-hander Jake Thompson is scheduled to start for the Beavers.
