Honorable Mentions:

Alex Fernandez | Academy of Art University | P – Fernandez has been a force on the bump for the Urban Knights this season, and his two showings in March so far have been no different. In matchups against Concordia, Irvine and Dixie State, Alex had a collective 11.2 IP, 10 K’s, and 1 W while giving up only 2 ER. On the season, Fernandez is 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA over 30.2 IP.

Nick Simonian | University of Illinois Chicago | P – In his first start of the season, Simonian managed to hold the Roosevelt Lakers at bay, tossing 4 Innings while giving up 0 Runs and collecting 4 K’s. The effort saw Nick leave the game with the lead, and eventually the Flames came around to win the game.
