BELLEVUE, Neb. -- Bellevue University junior right-hander Stephen Knapp (Huntington Beach, Calif.) has been named the North Star Athletic Association's Pitcher of the Week for the second-straight week as announced by the league office on Monday.
Knapp fired a complete game, four-hit shutout to pitch BU past #10 St. Thomas in the Warner Invitational on Thursday. He struck out four batters and issued just one free pass. It was already his third victory over a ranked opponent on the season after previously defeating then-No. 8 Oklahoma City and then-No. 24 Keiser.
On the season Knapp sports a record of 3-2 to go along with a 4.15 ERA. He has struck out 18 batters and walked just three in 30.1 innings of work, including three complete game efforts. Opponents are hitting just .226 against him and he owns a WHIP of 0.96 on the season.
The Bruins currently sit at 8-13 overall and are not scheduled to play again until Tuesday, Mar. 19 when they travel to Fremont, Neb. for a 4 p.m. contest against Midland University.
