Whitaker Named ODAC Pitcher of the Week

FOREST, VA-Sophomore ace Zach Whitaker (Roanoke, VA/Patrick Henry) was named this week's ODAC Pitcher of the week after his performance in the Tigers' 1-0 victory over Mary Washington. The honor is the second of his career and first of the season. 

Against the Eagles, Whitaker fired his fourth career complete game and first of the 2013 season in a 1-0 win. The 2012 ODAC Rookie of the Year tossed seven shutout innings, surrendering just four hits without a walk. He fanned one batter to earn his first victory of the season and lower his earned run average to 0.82 in 11 innings pitched.

The Roanoke native has a 1-0 mark in two appearances. He's struck out three, walked one, and allowed just one earned run on nine hits.

Whitaker and the Tigers return to action Wednesday afternoon with a 3:00 pm game against Greensboro in North Carolina.
