Chris Murphy, a junior at Millersville (Pa.) University, was named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Division II National Pitcher of the Week on Wednesday. He was placed on the ballot after winning the Atlantic Region Pitcher of the Week award and topped seven other regional winners for the honor.

Murphy, a right-handed starting pitcher, fired a nine-inning shutout against No. 7 Franklin Pierce on Saturday, allowing only three hits. He struck out 10 and walked only one. Including seven shutout innings against Le Moyne on Feb. 22, Murphy has now thrown 16 consecutive scoreless innings with 18 strikeouts and just five hits allowed.

A NCBWA All-America first-team selection in 2013, Murphy is now a three-time national pitcher of the week award winner.

In 19 career starts for Millersville, Murphy is 15-3 with a 2.09 earned-run average. Opponents are batting just .199 against him with 121 strikeouts and 29 walks.

Murphy, of Newark, graduated from St. Mark's in 2011.
