ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio University Baseball freshman right-hander Jake Miller was selected as the Mid-American Conference Pitcher of the Week on Tuesday by the league office.
Miller (Westerville, Ohio) earned the weekly honor after he helped guide the Bobcats to a convincing 8-1 victory over Boston College this past Saturday at the Keith LeClair Classic in Greenville, N.C.
In his lone appearance of the week, Miller worked 8.0 innings and gave up just one earned run to lead the Bobcats to their first win of the 2013 season. Miller, who was making just his second career collegiate start, was very sharp as he allowed just three hits and one walk to earn his first career win.
Ohio returns to action this weekend as it heads to Cary, N.C. to faceoff against Virginia Tech (March 1), Rhode Island (March 2) and Massachusetts (March 3).
