Baseball: Mount Union's Carson Davis Named OAC Pitcher of the Week

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Mount Union baseball student-athlete Carson Davis (Louisville) has been named Ohio Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.

Davis receives his first pitcher of the week selection of his career after going 3-0 with wins over Widener (Pa.), Concordia-Moorhead and Knox (Ill.) last week during the spring trip to Florida. The sophomore had one complete game with 20 strikeouts, two walks and six runs and four earned runs. Davis also retired 10-straight batters in the victory over Concordia-Moorhead. 

In the 11-0 victory over Knox (Ill.), Davis had 12 strikeouts over 6.0 innings of work. Davis had a stretch in that game where he struck out five consecutive batters.  

Davis and the Purple Raiders finished with a 9-3 record in Florida as they return to the diamond on Tuesday, March 19 facing Thiel (Pa.) starting at 2 p.m. in Greenville, Pa.
