      UAB's Chase Mallard named national player of the week

      UAB's Chase Mallard was the winning pitcher on opening night--and that was just the start.

      The senior's performance against UT-Martin earned him the honor of being named one of the Louisville Slugger National Players of the Week.

      Mallard was also named the C-USA Pitcher of the Week.

      The Cullman, Ala. native did not allow a hit and walked just one in seven innings of work. He struck out 13 in UAB's 5-0 win over UT-Martin on Friday.

      Mallard is the first Blazer to earn the National Player of the Week honor since Ben Bullard in March 2012.

      UAB took all three games from UT-Martin on opening weekend. The Blazers travel to Huntsville to play Alabama A&M on Tuesday. The game is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
