Conner Kendrick was named the Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the
Week today for his performance in last week’s 3-0 victory against the
No. 11 Arkansas Razorbacks.
In pitching Auburn’s first shutout in two years he struck out eight batters while allowing only four hits with one walk in 7 1/3 innings of work.
He has held opposing batters to a .257 batting average and leads the Auburn pitching staff with 74 strike outs.
Coach Pawlowski named him today as the starter against Alabama in tomorrow’s second, first round game of the SEC Tournament.
The Auburn IMG Network will carry the game on its baseball affiliates. And the game will also be broadcast live on FSN as well as on ESPN3.com – but only fans outside of SEC country will be able to view it as the net works will enforce viewing blackouts through out the south.
