Matthys Tabbed Big 12 Newcomer of the Week

On the heels of a career-long 4.1 scoreless inning effort Sunday at No. 27 Oklahoma State, Kansas State freshman right-hander Jake Matthys has been named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week. Matthys struck out three, walked none, and gave up just two Cowboy hits as K-State earned a 3-2 win. He picked up his sixth victory of the season, the most by a Wildcat reliever in the Big 12 era. Seven wins would tie a K-State freshman record.

Matthys also pitched a perfect ninth inning with a strikeout, and carded his third save in a 4-1 triumph over in-state rival Wichita State on Tuesday.

Due to a predicted high temperature reaching only 42 degrees Tuesday in Lincoln, K-State and Nebraska have elected to move their midweek contest to Wednesday evening at 6:35 p.m., at Hawks Field. The BD4 Distributing pregame show will begin at 6:00 on SportsRadio 1350 KMAN.
