    USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force baseball's Ben Bertelson was named Mountain West Conference Pitcher of the Week for games played April 30-May 6. Bertelson is Air Force baseball's third MW player of the week honoree this season.

    Bertelson, a junior from Midland, Texas, tossed a complete-game shutout against Kansas on Saturday with the Falcons winning, 3-0. The left-hander struck out eight batters and scattered eight hits, with just one going for extra bases. It was Air Force's first road victory of the season and the Falcons' first win over a Big 12 opponent since 2001. For his efforts, Bertelson was named to the Jayhawk Classic All-Tournament Team.

    Bertelson joins junior catcher Garrett Custons (Feb. 20) and senior RHP Evan Abrecht (April 9) as MW Player/Pitcher of the Week honorees.
