DURHAM, N.C. Ė Duke freshman Michael Ness was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week, league officials announced on Monday. Ness went 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA as the Blue Devils won all four games last week to improve to 13-1 on the season. He is the 10th Duke pitcher in school history to receive the weekly honor and the first since 2004.

Ness, a native of Chatham, N.J., made his first career start on Tuesday against North Carolina A&T and held the Aggies to one earned run on four hits in six innings of work. He also recorded four strikeouts in the win without allowing a walk. On Saturday, the right-hander came on in relief after Duke fell behind 5-0 to Holy Cross and guided the Blue Devils to a 10-7 victory. Ness held the Crusaders to one earned run on two hits in 3.1 innings. He had two strikeouts in the win and did not give up a walk. On the week, Ness allowed only two earned runs on just six hits in 9.1 innings pitched. He also registered six strikeouts in the two wins without allowing a walk.

The Blue Devils will return to the field with a pair of non-conference games this week, hosting Temple on Tuesday and Xavier on Wednesday at Jack Coombs Field. Both games are set for a 3 p.m. start. Duke will then open ACC play against Boston College this weekend at home.
