ROSEMONT, Ill. -- University of Michigan sophomore LHP Oliver Jaskie was named the Big Ten Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week, the league announced Monday afternoon (Feb. 22).
Jaskie made his first start of the 2016 season in Michigan's series finale contest against Canisius on Sunday (Feb. 21), tossing six complete innings and allowing just three hits. The sophomore also struck out a career-high nine batters in the outing, walking just one and allowing no earned runs.
The Ada, Michigan, native faced 24 batters in his second career start, finishing the weekend with a perfect 0.00 ERA and earning the team's fourth victory of the series for the program's best season start since 2009.
Heading into the second week of the 2016 season, Jaskie is the first pitcher in the conference to receive the award.
In other Big Ten weekly awards, Ohio State's Jacob Bosiokovis was named the Player of the Week, while Michigan State's Marty Bechina earned Freshman of the Week accolades.
With a perfect 4-0 record in hand, Michigan will return to action on Friday, Feb. 26, when it faces St. Joseph's in a neutral-site game in Santa Clara, California. First pitch is slated for 10 a.m. PST.
