For the second time in three weeks Mississippi State’s Ross Mitchell was named the SEC Pitcher of the Week.
The junior southpaw made his second career start Saturday against Georgia and tossed a complete game victory improving to 3-1 on the year and 19-1 overall. Mitchell gave up only one run while scattering four hits, four walks and striking out five.
Mitchell was able to snap UGA’s 11-game winning streak and also spark MSU’s first series win in Athens since 1997. The Smyrna, Tenn., native has made eight appearances this year sporting a 1.50 earned run average, 22 strikeouts and 11 walks in 36 innings.
