UMAC Pitcher of Week 01 May 12

MLC senior pitcher Joe Blum was named UMAC Pitcher of the Week for his performance on the mound for the Knights last week.

Blum made his one start last week count, scattering three hits and four walks while striking out five in a 2-0 shutout of UM-Morris in the first game of Sunday’s triple header at UMM. It was the first shutout Blum has recorded in his college career.

Blum is the second MLC pitcher to win the award in the last two weeks, as teammate Jake Ziel won the award one week ago.

The Knights will resume play this Friday, May 4, when they host Presentation for a double header scheduled to start at 3 p.m.
