For the second time in his sophomore campaign, Carson Teel has been named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week.
The accolade comes after posting a 2-0 record in three appearances.
Against Oral Roberts in the midweek game, Teel threw two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out two batters while only throwing 32 pitches. He threw 20 pitches for strikes, and six of the seven batters he faced saw first-pitch strikes.
He was clutch in Lubbock over the weekend though, earning the win in Friday’s game, as well as Sunday’s game. In 3.1 innings of total work, he allowed three hits, no runs, two walks (one intentional) and struck out five Red Raiders.
After seeing his ERA start the year up above 5.00, Teel has brought it down to a respectable 3.61. Take out a couple bad games, and that would likely be down closer to 3.00 if not below.
Teel earned the award back on March 13th as well. This is the sixth time this season a Cowboy has earned a Big 12 weekly accolade. Joining Teel is Garrett Benge, who has won Big 12 Player of the Week twice. Travis Wacker and Jonathan Heasley have earned Big 12 Newcomer of the Week once apiece.
