Mississippi State sophomore Vance Tatum earned SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week after picking up a win against Samford on Sunday.

Tatum pitched a career-long eight innings and notched a personal best 12 strikeouts. The southpaw carried a one-hitter into the ninth fame and finished allowing two runs on two hits.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder from Olive Branch shared the award with Kentucky starter Kyle Cody.

Tatum has started two of his three appearances on the year going 2-0 with 25 strikeouts and five walks in 18.2 innings while maintaining a 1.45 earned run average. He leads the conference in strikeouts, opposing batting average (.085) and is tied for fewest hits allowed (5).

The Diamond  Dogs also announced that their Tuesday game with Arkansas-Pine Bluff has been pushed up to 4 p.m. due to weather concerns.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
