Schaefer takes national honor

SCHAEFER IS NAIA PITCHER OF WEEK
Cumberland senior Shawn Schaefer was named the NAIA National Pitcher of the Week on Tuesday after posting a pair of complete game victories on the mound, including a four-hitter against sixth-ranked Embry-Riddle.

Schaefer won a pair of games last week, tossing two complete games, including a four-hit gem against sixth-ranked Embry-Riddle last Monday. The lefthander struck out a season-high 12, walked just one and worked all nine innings in a 3-1 triumph over the Eagles.

The Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, native then tossed his second one-hitter of the season, allowing a leadoff single and then retiring the next 15 batters in an 11-0, five-inning victory over Davenport Univ. on Saturday.

Schaefer has won all five of his starts this season, posting a 1.07 ERA in 33.2 innings with 32 strikeouts and just six walks. Opponents are batting just .143 against him as well. He earned the TranSouth Pitcher of the Week honor on Monday this week as well as on March 1 and March 8 this season previously.

Schaefer is the fourth Bulldog player to win NAIA National Player of the Week honors, joining Jeff Luttrell (1993), Chili Miranda (2003) and Angel Murcado (2006).

Cumberland (22-5) plays at Georgetown College at 2:30 p.m. CT Wednesday before heading to Jackson this weekend for the TranSouth Conference opening series against Union University starting Friday at 6 p.m. at Fesmire Field.

GREENER & SCHAEFER RECOGNIZED
LEBANON --
Cumberland University swept the weekly TranSouth Conference baseball awards, which were announced Monday afternoon from the league office.

Matt Greener and Shawn Schaefer were named TranSouth Player and Pitcher of the Week after their contributions in five Bulldog victories, including a pair over sixth-ranked Embry-Riddle. The honor is the third this season for Schaefer and the second for Greener.

Schaefer won a pair of games during the week, tossing two complete games,  including a four-hit gem against sixth-ranked Embry-Riddle last Monday. The lefthander struck out a season-high 12, walked just one and worked all nine innings in a 3-1 triumph over the Eagles.

The Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, native then tossed his second one-hitter of the season, allowing a leadoff single and then retiring the next 15 batters in an 11-0, five-inning victory over Davenport Univ. on Saturday. Schaefer has won all five of his starts this season, posting a 1.07 ERA in 33.2 innings with 32 strikeouts and just six walks. Opponents are batting just .143 against him as well. He earned the TranSouth Pitcher of the Week honors on March 1 and March 8 this season previously.

Greener batted .571 (12-for-21) in six games with two doubles, three home runs and 13 RBIs as well as six runs scored. He collected five hits, scored a pair of runs and drove in three others, as the Bulldogs won 2-of-3 versus Embry-Riddle. The Jupiter, Fla., native added a two-run homer in CU’s 17-7 triumph over Georgetown College on Wednesday, and then hit a pair of home runs – a three-run shot and a two-run homer – in Saturday’s doubleheader sweep of Davenport Univ.

For the season Greener leads the Bulldogs with a .461 batting average and ranks first or second on the club with 10 doubles, nine home runs and 36 RBIs.
