MLC pitcher Jacob Ziel was named UMAC Pitcher of the Week Tuesday for his performance on the mound last week for the Knights.
Ziel pitched in one game last week for MLC, throwing his first career shutout in a 1-0 win over North Central. Ziel allowed just four hits in seven innings, striking out seven on the way to picking up his first win of the season.
Ziel currently leads the MLC pitching staff in innings (41.1), wins (two), strikeouts (41) and starts (seven).
MLC baseball will return to action on Friday, April 27, for the start of a weekend series at UM-Morris.
