Ball State freshman pitcher Zach Plesac saw his first collegiate action last weekend and earned Mid-American Conference Pitcher of the Week honors for his performance.
Plesac earned two wins in relief in the same day as Ball State defeated Morehead State 7-5 and Wofford 6-4 in 10 innings Sunday. He pitched 2.1 innings in each game and registered the two victories. Plesac recorded five strikeouts and gave up only one hit and no runs in his two appearances.
The Cardinals started the season 3-1 in four games in Spartanburg, S.C. In addition to the wins over Morehead State and Wofford, Ball State defeated USC Upstate and suffered a loss to Dayton.
Ball State will travel to the Snow Bird Classic Friday through Sunday in Port Charlotte, Fla., and open against Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Mississippi Valley State Friday.
