Brett Abell named MIAA Baseball Pitcher of the Week

Kansas City, Mo. -- Missouri Southern senior left handed pitcher Brett Abell has been named the MIAA Baseball Pitcher of the Week as announced by the league office today. 

Abell looks to be back after a year away due to Tommy John surgery. The senior from Miami, Okla. pitched a nine-inning complete-game against Truman, helping the Lions to a 5-2 win in game two of a double-header on Saturday.

He struck out 12 and walked none, while limiting the Bulldogs to just two runs, only one earned.

The Lions will play a double-header at Northeastern State tomorrow, before playing host to Lincoln this weekend in a conference series.
