Missouri freshman pitcher earns Big 12 honors

Monday, May 7, 2012 | 8:43 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — John Miles, a freshman right-handed pitcher on the Missouri baseball team, has been named Big 12 Conference Newcomer of the Week.

Miles, a Rock Bridge graduate, put together one of his best weeks as a Tiger beginning with his first-ever start last Wednesday at No. 18 Arkansas. He struck out five Razorbacks and walked just one in four scoreless innings. He came back over the weekend to pitch against No. 25 Texas and went 3 2/3 innings, allowing just one earned run on just three hits.

Miles is the second Tiger this season to be named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week and the fourth Tiger this season to earn a Big 12 weekly award. The last Tiger to take home Big 12 Newcomer of the Week was lefty Blake Holovach on March 26.

The Tigers are set to play their next game against Missouri State at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Taylor Stadium.
