Mississippi State right-handed pitcher Chris Stratton was named the SEC pitcher of the week on Monday.
It’s the second time this season Stratton has won the award. The junior from Tupelo tossed a complete-game shutout of Ole Miss on Friday as MSU won 4-0. He struck out seven, walked one and allowed five hits.
On the season, Stratton is an SEC-best 8-0 with a 2.39 ERA. He’s second in the league in strikeouts with 95, including 68 in seven SEC starts.
Stratton was also named pitcher of the week on March 19 after a 17-strikeout outing against LSU.
