May 10 - WEXFORD, Pa. – Bethany College junior Mike Kochman (Pittsburgh, Pa./Serra Catholic) has been selected as the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) Pitcher of the Week for May 10.

The 6-2 right-hander played a huge role in the Bison’s 7-6 victory over Grove City last Friday, which kept BC’s hopes alive for a spot in the conference tournament. Kochman entered the game in the fifth inning with Bethany trailing 6-3 and threw 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief to enable the Green and White to come back for a 7-6 triumph.

With his stellar relief work, Kochman earned the win, which raised his record to 4-3 for the year. It also continued a strong stretch for him, as in his last five appearances, he has now allowed only one earned run in the last 11 1/3 innings of work dating back to April 23 for a 0.80 ERA over that span.

A psychology major, Mike is the son of Margaret Kochman and John Fazio of Pittsburgh, Pa.
