Liberty's Solbach Named New Balance Big South Pitcher of the Week
Liberty right-hander Michael Solbach has been selected as the New Balance Pitcher of the Week for games played Feb. 19-March 4, the Big South Conference office announced today.
Against Albany on Feb. 23, he allowed two unearned runs and just one hit over six innings on a cold and windy day at Worthington Stadium. Solbach retired 16-straight batters before giving way to a reliever, collecting his first win of the year. This past Friday, Solbach went seven innings and allowed two runs, one earned, on four hits against Manhattan. The right-hander fanned seven and walked two. With the win over the Jaspers, Solbach moved his 2007 mark to 2-1.
Solbach and the Flames travel to Norfolk, Va., this afternoon for a contest with the Old Dominion Monarchs. Game time is set for 3 p.m.
