UHV Baseball Pitcher Earns Red River Award

Posted: Updated:

A UHV baseball pitcher is recognized by the Red River Conference. Tanner Knowles has delivered in both of his first two starts for the University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars and his play has not gone unnoticed.

Knowles, a junior from Houston, was named the Red River Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week for the week of Feb. 12-18 on Monday. The 6-foot-3 lefty scattered seven hits over 5.2 innings to lead the Jaguars to a 3-0 win over NCAA Division II opponent Texas A&M-International University last week in his only start of the week.

Knowles struck out five and walked none for his first victory of the season. A week earlier, he took a no-hitter against Trinity University into the sixth inning only to lose the game on an unearned run in the sixth. Through two starts, he hasn’t allowed an earned run in 11.2 innings while striking out nine and allowing no walks.

University of the Southwest’s Ean Smith was named the RRAC Baseball Player of the Week.
