FREELAND, Mich.--For the second time in his collegiate baseball career, Adrian College sophomore Mo Hanley (Tampa, Fla./Chamberlain HS) has been selected the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Pitcher of the Week. That announcement was made by the league office on Monday. Hanley also won the award on April 8.

Hanley threw 13 innings in two appearances as part of the nationally-ranked Bulldogs' 6-0 week. He struck out 21 batters and opponents hit only .167 against him. To wrap up the week on Sunday, he struck out a career-best 11 Thunder batters in seven innings en route to Adrian's 8-2 victory at Trine. He allowed two runs (zero earned), three hits and did not issue a walk.

On the season, Hanley improves to 4-0 and lowers his earned-run average to 1.52 over 41-1/3 innings. The business administration-marketing major is ranked second in the MIAA in both ERA and strikeouts (53), the latter being a career high.

All told, the Adrian pitching staff has been honored five times by the conference in 2019 (including junior Pierce Banks on March 18 and April 15, and freshman Maxwell Denny on March 11).

Adrian looks to continue its seven game-winning streak during the final week of the regular season in a four-game series against conference rival Hope College on Friday (2 p.m.) in Adrian and then on Saturday (1 p.m.) in Holland.
