USAF ACADEMY, Colo. – Air Force sophomore right-hander Sean Carley earned National Pitcher of the Week, announced today.  It is Carley’s second pitcher of the week honor so far this week.

Carley led Air Force to a 6-0 win over Bowling Green by tossing a two-hit, complete-game shutout Saturday at the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational in Auburndale, Fla.  Carley allowed a single in the first and a leadoff single in the second, before retiring 24 consecutive batters en route to his first collegiate complete game and shutout.  The Melbourne, Fla., native struck out a career-high 12 batters without a walk while allowing only one runner to reach second base.

It was Air Force’s first complete game shutout since Jake Petro blanked Hawaii-Hilo in 2007 and the first nine-inning shutout since Josh Zumbrun against San Diego State in 2003.  The 12 strikeouts are the most in a game since Michael Tufte fanned 12 against Nebraska-Omaha in 2001.

Carley was also named Mountain West Conference Pitcher of the Week yesterday.
