CINCINNATI - Xavier baseball pitcher Eric Stiene was named to the 2014 Gregg Olson Award watch list. Stiene joins a list of 80 student-athletes to be nominated for the award.

Stiene had a limited role in the Musketeers' bullpen last year, pitching in just four appearances and giving up 10 runs over seven innings. He finished the 2013 season with a 7.71 ERA and one save.

The redshirt sophomore is now one of Xavier's most reliable pitchers. In four starts and 10 relief appearances, Stiene leads XU with a 2.03 ERA and a record of three wins and two losses over 40 innings pitched.

The Gregg Olson award is named after former Auburn pitcher Gregg Olson, who became one of the top collegiate players after breaking out from a year where he struggled on the mound. Olson rebounded and became a two-time All American, MLB Rookie of the Year and All Star.

Stiene and the Musketeers are in action Tuesday afternoon at Bowling Green for their final non-conference game of the 2014 season. First pitch is set for 3:00 p.m. with live stats provided by
