Xavier's Cave Named Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Week


CINCINNATI --- Xavier pitcher Kevin Cave (Levittown, PA) has been named Co-Pitcher of the Week by the Atlantic 10 for the week ending April 22.

The sophomore garnered the honor after perhaps the most impressive outing of his career. Cave threw a complete game two-hit shutout on Friday, April 20 at Atlantic 10 foe St. Bonaventure. Cave struck out five batters on the day, while walking just one.

Cave, the first Musketeer in 2001 to earn a weekly honor, is now 3-4 on the season with a 5.92 Earned Run Average. He is second on the team in strikeouts with 45. Opposing batters are hitting a paltry .257 against Cave.

He shares the honor with Greg Powell of Temple.
