Felax Named OVC Pitcher of the Week

Felax Named OVC Pitcher of the Week

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – SIUE starter Travis Felax (Troy, Ill.) was named as the Ohio Valley Conference's baseball Pitcher of the Week Monday.

Felax led SIUE to a win in its home opener Sunday. The right-hander started and tossed a season-high seven innings to lead the Cougars to a win in the first game of a doubleheader against IPFW.

He allowed a single run on four hits. Felax struck out eight, which is one shy of his career high. He retired 14 of the last 17 hitters he faced in the game. At one point he retired six straight hitters and fanned five in a row.

The award is the third of the junior's career. He was selected as the Pitcher of the Week twice as a sophomore. Felax joins Austin Peay's Craig Massoni, who was chosen as Player of the Week, as the OVC's weekly winners.

The Cougars are 2-7 and play host to Illinois State Tuesday afternoon at 3 p.m. at Simmons Baseball Complex.
