Robert Morey named ACC Pitcher of the Week

After the series sweep of No. 21 North Carolina this weekend, Robert Morey earned ACC Pitcher of the Week honors for the week of May 17.  This is his first such honor this year and if I'm not mistaken, of his career.

Morey pitched his second-consecutive complete game, a first at UVa since Andrew Dobies fired back-to-back complete games in 2004. The Virginia Beach, Va., junior was the first opposing pitcher to go the distance vs. North Carolina this season in Saturday's 5-1 win.

Morey held UNC to a season-low three hits. He did not allow a hit until the sixth inning and retired 15 straight batters at one point. He also tied his season high with eight strikeouts as the top-ranked Cavaliers posted their 13th straight victory in their current 14-game winning streak.
