BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern senior pitcher Blake Stevens has been named the Southern Athletic Association Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced today.

Stevens, a right-hander from Atlanta, Ga., helped No. 18 BSC move to 5-0 this weekend, starting Friday's game against No. 23 Adrian College and going six innings while giving up only two hits, two walks, and one earned run while striking out six batters. His ERA for the week was 1.50 and he allowed opponents to hit only .105 while he was on the mound.

The baseball team travels to face Huntingdon College tomorrow at 6 p.m. before returning home to host an SAA series against Oglethorpe this weekend, with games Friday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
