DURHAM, N.C. – Duke senior right-hander Drew Van Orden has earned ACC Pitcher of the Week honors after leading the Blue Devils past NC State Friday.

Van Orden shut out the Wolfpack for eight innings and struck out 11 to key the Blue Devils to a 2-0 victory in the series opener. The Manhattan Beach, Calif., native surrendered just three hits with one walk and did not face more than four batters in any inning. Van Orden struck out at least one Wolfpack hitter in each of this eight innings and fanned two in the first, second and fourth frames.

After the Blue Devils grabbed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second, Van Orden retired15 of the next 17 batters he faced to maintain the advantage heading into the ninth. The 6-3 right-hander yielded just one hit over his final five innings and did not permit a baserunner after the fifth.

The honor is the first ACC weekly recognition for Van Orden and the second for a Blue Devil this season.
