Ziehl Named National Pitcher of the Week

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Following a career outing against Presbyterian, Miami ace Gage Ziehl garnered National Pitcher of the Week recognition from Collegiate Baseball, as announced Monday.

In the series opener, Ziehl recorded a career-high 12 strikeouts across a co-career-long eight scoreless innings. The right-hander retired 20 of the first 23 batters he faced, scattering three hits and a walk in the Hurricanes’ 13-4 victory.

The national distinction marks the second career weekly honor for Ziehl, as the 6-foot, 216-pound hurler earned ACC Pitcher of the Week plaudits on March 13.

No. 11 Miami (31-16, 14-10 ACC) closes out a four-game homestand Wednesday against FIU. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.
