University of Arkansas at Monticello sophomore Zach McKnight has been named the Great American Conference Baseball Co-Pitcher of the Week after striking out nine batters in a 13-1 win over Southern Nazarene this past Friday.
It was McKnight’s first career complete game and also set a new career-high in strikeouts.
Overall this season, McKnight holds a 4-2 record with a 2.58 earned run average. He has been in on one shutout and also has a save in just over 52 innings on the mound.
McKnight shared this week’s conference honor with Northwestern Oklahoma State’s Eddie Cumpston, who threw a seven-inning no-hitter with 10 strikeouts in a win over Hillsdale Baptist last Tuesday.
