HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Marshall right-handed pitcher Aaron Blair has been named Conference USA Pitcher of the Week for the week ending March 24.
In his only outing of the week, Blair kept school rival West Virginia hitless and scoreless over six innings while fanning a season high 11 hitters. The junior was lifted at the end of the sixth due to a high pitch count.
Blair took himself out of self-induced trouble in the first inning of Tuesday's contest by striking out the side after loading the bases with nobody out. Beyond the first, Blair allowed only three base runners.
Only two Mountaineer hitters were able to get the ball out of the infield in Blair's six innings.
