Mississippi State Jr, Chris Stratton of Tupelo has been named the Louisville Slugger National Player of the week for his performance against LSU. Image: http://sdnmsu.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/chris-stratton-200.jpg?w=750
Against LSU he had 17 strikeouts in 8 2/3's innings only allowing 1 run on 4 hits.
The bad thing is that he got a no decision. Still pitched a heck of a game.
ETA: Stratton has also been named the SEC's pitcher of the week. LINK
Stratton registered an SEC season-high and career-best 17 strikeouts and four hits over 8.2 innings in a remarkable no-decision start at No. 10 LSU. Matched with LSU ace Kevin Gausman, Stratton struck out all nine starters in the LSU lineup, fanned two Tiger batters three times each and recorded a trio of three-strikeout innings… His 17 strikeouts is the most by a Bulldog pitcher since 1992.
• He held LSU to .138 hitting in the game. At one stretch he retired 16 consecutive batters, 11 via strikeout. Stratton leads the SEC with 44 strikeouts and the team with 29.2 innings pitched.
