HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Thundering Herd starting pitcher Aaron Blair is scheduled to make the start in Saturday’s Cape Cod Baseball League All-Star game.

Saturday’s game will be televised nationally on Fox College Sports, while WCAI and the island’s NPR will air radio coverage.

Blair, a rising junior on Marshall’s baseball team, is 6-0 in six starts with the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox (South Yarmouth, Mass.).  The right-hander leads the 10-team CCBL in wins (six) and earned run average (1.27), and ranks second in strikeouts (40).  Alongside those 40 strikeouts, Blair has walked only 11 hitters in 35.1 innings.
