KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the second time this season a member of the Raven baseball team earned a HAAC weekly honor.

Raven pitcher Adam Burns (Soph., Overland Park) was named the HAAC Pitcher of the Week for his efforts against Avila University on Saturday in Benedictine's 2-0 10-inning win.

Burns threw all 10 innings in the win, holding the Eagles scoreless to earn his second shutout of the season. He struck out season high seven batters for the second straight outing en route to his fifth complete game.

On the season, Burns is now 5-4 in 11 appearances with seven starts. He has a season earned run average of 2.91 over 155.2 innings pitched.
