WISE, Va. - UVa-Wise's Steven Klaiber has been named Mid-South Conference Pitcher of the Week for his perfromance last Friday at Campbellsville University.
Klaiber pitched a two-hit gem to help the Cavaliers to a 2-1 win over MSC leading Campbellsville to earn the conference's top weekly pitching honor. The win helped the Cavaliers win two of three from the Tigers.
The Roanoke, Va., freshman picked up his first collegiate win in the complete-game effort while striking out four and walking just one. An unearned run in the eighth inning prevented Klaiber from posting his first career shutout.
Klaiber is 12th in the Mid-South with a 2.60 ERA. He is tied for 13th in the conference allowing the opposition a .255 batting average.
UVa-Wise moves to 8-14 overall and is 4-5 in the Mid-South. The Cavs will return to play on Wednesday when they visit the Knights of Southern Virginia for a non-conference doubleheader.
