The Ducks’ right-hander, Conor Harber was named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week for his performances against New Mexico State and Hawaii last week.

The junior transfer from Western Nevada College looks to continue his success on the mound for the Ducks this season. Harber had great success during his 2014 sophomore season with the Wildcats in Nevada. He recorded an 8-0 record pitching for Western Nevada, where he led the team with 82 strikeouts and a 2.49 ERA. The right-handed Oregonian also has quite the bat – he hit a .331 while playing in outfield last season, and hit a .411 the season before that with the Wildcats.

The Oregon native has brought his past success into his 2015 season for the Ducks. Harber began his season by pitching five innings where he had four strikeouts and only gave up two hits, in the Ducks’ 12-0 win over Hawaii last week.

He has also recently proved that he can take on the long relief role by pitching six hitless innings in the Ducks’ 3-1 victory over the New Mexico State Aggies last Thursday. He recorded eight strikeouts in the win over the Aggies as well.

So far Harber has only allowed two hits in 11 innings this season, where he has also recorded 12 strikeouts and only two walks. Harber seeks to increase his confidence after his first two very strong appearances on the mound this season, starting with a 2-0 record and a 0.00 ERA.

Harber plans to continue his success for the Ducks, where he will take the mound during No. 20 Oregon’s series with No. 22 Santa Barbara in California this coming weekend.
