Spalding University's Jimi Keating was named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association NCAA Division III National Pitcher of the Week for the period of April 10-16.
The NCBWA Player of the Week awards are a national award given to one pitcher and one hitter based on outstanding performance.
Keating, a junior right-hander from Bardstown, Ky., led the Golden Eagles to a 1-0 victory of SLIAC rival Webster University. The SLIAC Pitcher of the Week worked nine scoreless innings, allowing just four hits while striking out 13 and walking only one batter, in a complete game effort.
Keating and the Golden Eagles will be back on the diamond Saturday and Sunday at Blackburn College in Carlinville, Ill. The SLIAC East Division series will play a doubleheader Saturday at 2 and 4:30 pm, and wrap up on Sunday with nine innings starting at 2 pm EST.
