For the third straight week a USC hurler has been tabbed SEC pitcher of the week. This week’s winner is junior left-hander Michael Roth. Roth allowed just one run on three hits in a 3-1 win over then top ranked Vanderbilt Friday night. Roth struck out eight hitters that game.
This season Roth leads the SEC with an 8-1 record and a 1.24 ERA. His 65.1 innings is also the most by a pitcher in the SEC. He is third in the league in strikeouts with 62 and fifth in the league in opposing batting average (.209).
Last week, Colby Holmes was SEC Pitcher of the Week and two weeks ago Forrest Koumas earned SEC Co-Freshman of the Week accolades
