Surging Indiana State pitcher Collin Liberatore garners conference honors

Bill Beckner

Collin Liberatore has been dealing, as they say. The big right-hander has found a groove in the Indiana State pitching rotation and is taking full advantage of his opportunity.

Liberatore, a Greensburg Central Catholic product who began his college career at Pitt before transferring, is 8-0 this season and has garnered conference accolades.

He was named the Missouri Valley Conference Pitcher of the Week after a recent outing that was slightly better than your average quality start.

The redshirt junior struck out a career-high 10 hitters, allowed just two hits and walked one over eight innings in a 7-2 win over Southern Illinois. He retired seven straight batters before departing that game.

Liberatore has a 2.00 ERA and has given up 16 runs in 72 innings. He has 49 strikeouts and 19 walks. He has gone at least 7 2/3 innings in his last five starts.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
