Mississippi State left-handed pitcher Jacob Lindgren was named the SEC freshman of the week, the league office announced Sunday.
In MSU’s 11-3 win over Kentucky on Saturday, Lindgren (2-2, 2.75 ERA) earned the victory with 51⁄3 innings of relief work. He allowed one run on three hits, struck out seven and walked none in a career long outing. He retired 15 of the 18 batters he faced.
Lindgren, of Bay St. Louis, is the fourth Bulldog this season to earn an SEC honor, including the second freshman. Demarcus Henderson was freshman of the week March 12.
