Blake Schwartz will once again extend his stay in Mankato through the summer, coming to the MoonDogs from Minnesota State. Schwartz, originally from Rosemount, Minnesota, just finished his Junior year for the Mavericks as a starter. His 2.18 ERA was tops among all MSU starting pitchers in 2011. Schwartz had another solid season, posting a 10-2 record while pitching 3 complete games and 2 shutouts during the regular season. Look for Schwartz to once again lead the MoonDogs pitching staff in 2011.
